Recently, voter ID has received renewed attention as President Trump has taken to Twitter and rallies to express his support for election integrity nationwide. Notably, the President tweeted last week that “No debate on Election Security should go forward without first agreeing that Voter ID must play a very strong part in any final agreement”. The debate the President refers to surrounds the Democrats’ attempt to pass provisions of H.R.1, an elections overhaul that circumvents state control of elections, handing power to the federal government. In the words of Senate Leader Mitch McConnell HR 1 is the "Democrat Politician Protection Act." HR 1 would effectively eliminate Voter ID.Read more

This past month, Democrat Representative Joaquin Castro released the names of Trump donors in San Antonio in a heated tweet claiming they are “fueling a campaign of hate.”
In natural form, the liberal mob immediately went on attack and began harassing these people.
It’s hard to imagine a scenario where Rep. Castro did not intend for the donors to be harassed. Why else would he publicly chastise them?Read more
On Tuesday, former Georgia Democratic Gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams is set to announce the expansion of her group “Fair Fight 2020” during a press conference in Las Vegas. Abrams’ group seeks to combat “voter suppression” in 20 states leading up to the 2020 election. By doubling-down on her debunked claims that so-called voter suppression is to blame for her 2018 loss to Governor Brian Kemp, Abrams is raising her national profile for a presumptive bid to higher office. Her 2018 Gubernatorial campaign in Georgia lost by almost 55,000 votes.Read more
Starting this year, thousands of teenagers in Colorado are now eligible to vote at the age of 17. The “Colorado Votes Act” allows 17-year-olds to vote in primary elections as long as they’ll turn 18 by the general election.
While Democrats masked this initiative in the name of youth civic engagement, their true intentions are to gain a political advantage and it could not be more obvious.Read more
RNLA Vice President for Communications Harmeet Dhillon wrote today about Twitter's ban of Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's campaign account and how it is only the latest example of big technology companies' bias against conservatives and Republicans. His account was reinstated today, after having been banned all week:
But this victory by the most powerful Republican in Congress is an exception to the censorship suffered by many others as a result of Big Tech’s anti-conservative bias and increasingly brazen interference in the political arena, which pose serious threats to our democracy.Read more
On Tuesday, the California Republican Party and its Chairperson, represented by former RNLA President and Board of Governors member Chuck Bell, filed an emergency petition for a writ of mandate in the California Supreme Court, challenging California's new law requiring presidential candidates to disclose their tax returns prior to appearing on California's presidential primary ballot. As we wrote on Tuesday, this law is a blatantly political maneuver to keep President Trump off the ballot, and a federal lawsuit against it is also pending.Read more
Today, RNLA Vice President for Communications and RNC Committeewoman from California Harmeet Dhillon’s firm and Michael Best & Friedrich filed a lawsuit against California Governor Gavin Newsom seeking to enjoin California Demorats' illegal attempt to keep qualified candidates off the Presidential ballot. The lawsuit says in part:
As demonstrated by the legislative history and Governor Newsom’s public comments, the Act is a naked political attack against the sitting President of the United States. The Act subverts the franchise for cheap political gain, creates an extra-constitutional qualification for the office of President, and effectively disenfranchises voters by denying their right to associate for the advancement of political beliefs and effectively cast a vote for the otherwise qualified candidate of their choosing.Read more
