Mark Finchem, an Arizona state representative who has said he would not have certified the 2020 election, won the Republican primary for secretary of state on Tuesday, making him the latest election denier to move closer to controlling his state’s election system.
Across the country, Republicans who say the 2020 election was rigged are vying to be elected secretary of state, a position that would grant them immense control over their states’ election systems.
As of July 28, at least 20 election deniers are running for secretary of state in 16 states, according to States United Action, an organization that tracks these races.
Races for secretary of state since 2020 have gone from low-profile contests to ones in which massive amounts of money have been spent on candidates who have a higher profile than ever before.
As November approaches, candidates in Arizona and three other critical states — Michigan, Minnesota, and Nevada — continue to claim that Donald Trump won the 2020 election and have vowed to erect barriers to voting. All the candidates have raised enough money to be competitive.
They’ve all won the Republican nomination and will appear on the ballot in November. They all have close ties to Trump allies and many of them have been endorsed by Trump.
Here’s how four candidates are campaigning and what they say about the future of elections in their states:

The new "RACIST!!" pejorative.
‘Election deniers’? Is that like ‘climate change deniers’?
Not seeing how preventing vote fraud is supposed to be a bad thing.
Yes the methods of voting and vote integrity need to be controlled which only makes sense.
Election fraud deniers.
I guess these election deniers joined Al Gore,Hilary,Stacy and every other dem that loses any election.
Remember wack job Hillary saying they stored you for voting if you were a woman, black, gay, or for any reason “they” didn’t like.
But it’s ok to elect crazy witches like Hilary?
stopped you from voting.
auto correct is a major embarrassment.
When is America have we ever had people do things like call people “election deniers” as though they have committed a crime by believing and seeing evidence of cheating in a political race?
Thses RATS and RINOs are evil to the bone.
The enemy is within.

Election “Deniers” now in control in 4 states.
Read that carefully. You’d think that would tell them something.
Degaston, I want you to see how this works. You have all the major broadcasting agencies spewing the lie that the election was the cleanest in history, and everyone who says it wasn't is an "election denier."
Liberals already claim that all these efforts to make elections secure are just intended to stop black people from voting.
This is how the lie gets spread. They control the main sources of information, and they repeat the lie over and over and over again. Without anyone to argue to the contrary, over time people believe the crap fed to them by all the "official" news sources.
It's propaganda, and this is how it's done in a modern setting. It was done exactly the same in the 1860s.
I Googled little Kira.....little ugly leftist big city girl just spewing her leftist words...... she has about as much life experience as a turnip.
This is the truth, but the liars have by far the louder voice in the nation. They will also have control of how the history books get written.
“… election deniers are campaigning to control voting”
i was surveyed over the phone and the reporter asked why i supported someone propagating the lie... and i told her to be careful not to show her bias... and she lost it saying how can i think the election was stolen after it has been debunked and i just laughed at her.
Election officials risk criminal charges under 31 new GOP-imposed penalties

Second in a two-part series. See part one here. Since the 2020 election, Iowa has enacted one new felony and two new misdemeanor offenses targeting election officials. The state’s omnibus election law, passed in 2021, criminalizes election officials who fail to perform their duties, don’t adequately maintain voter lists, or interfere with other people performing their […]
There’s a logical breakdown in their propaganda output!
If the election wasn’t stolen/rigged/altered, then why would ‘election deniers’ trying to “control” elections be a problem?
If there’s no problem, then what’s the problem????
They want everyone to think that the “election deniers” want to do the rigging.
Just like everything else, all the crap they get away with, they try to blame on their opponents so that they can keep getting away with it.
clever frickin bastages
