Polls have been closed for a day, and we still don't know the outcome of some of the most consequential races from the 2022 midterms. In Arizona, hundreds of thousands of ballots are outstanding statewide, leaving the results of important races, like the Gubernatorial and Senate, unclear. (You can follow RNLA Chair Harmeet Dhillon for the latest on Arizona.)
And an additional ~ 125k absentees mailed in Saturday to Tuesday. Again, we expect to pick up votes from all these batches.— Harmeet K. Dhillon (@pnjaban) November 9, 2022
As Election Day 2022 comes to a close, Florida continues to be the poster child for how impactful state election reforms can be. Within a few hours of the polls closing, winners of most races were determined with confidence. Governor Ron DeSantis and U.S. Senator Marco Rubio both won decisive victories.Read more
When it comes to electing people who will defend our rights, many believe the races for statewide and federal office are the most important. However, races for local offices play a crucial role in ensuring that our liberties are preserved from the ground up. In Florida, parental rights won big during Tuesday's primary as several school districts had their school boards flip to conservative control:
Five school boards in Clay, Miami Dade, Duval, Sarasota, and Martin counties are now Republican-dominated. Miami’s takeover is especially notable as it became the largest county in America with a conservative school-board majority. . .Read more
It's been one week since Election Day, and as the RNC reports, last week's elections are proof that GOP-backed voting reforms work:
- In Georgia, Democrats lied about SB202, Georgia’s election integrity law, which led to a Democrat-backed boycott meant to hurt small businesses.
Many Democrats have made it clear that they hope the filibuster is abolished, but a Democrat congresswoman is showing that there are still divisions within the party on the issue. In an interview with CNN, Stephanie Murphy (FL-7), once believed to be a contender for the Democratic nominee to challenge Republican Marco Rubio, expressed doubts over whether the filibuster should be discontinued.Read more
On Thursday, the Republican National Committee (RNC) and the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) announced that they are seeking to intervene in two ongoing lawsuits filed by the NAACP and the League of Women Voters (via Marc Elias) challenging election reforms recently signed into Florida law by Governor Ron DeSantis:
“Florida’s recent election reforms are aimed at a simple goal: making it easier to vote and harder to cheat,” said RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel. “Democrat attempts to dishonestly misrepresent these common-sense reforms are pure political theater, and Floridians see right through them. The RNC remains committed to protecting election integrity at every level of the process, no matter how many lies Democrats tell.”Read more

Mike Bloomberg is never going to give up trying to buy this election. Earlier this year, you could not watch TV or go on the Internet without seeing an Ad for "Mike Bloomberg for President." Yet Bloomberg’s Presidential campaign was a legendary bust as the Washington Post wrote.
In the 14 Super Tuesday states and American Samoa, he spent over $224 million in ads. The result? He won eight delegates by the time he dropped out — or, one delegate for every $28 million he spent on ads.
By plowing half a billion dollars into his campaign, the media tycoon became the biggest self-spending candidate in U.S. history in just three months. If you watched TV, listened to the radio or used the Internet at some point since December, it felt nearly impossible to miss a glitzy Bloomberg campaign ad.Read more
