All the whispers about the Big Lie and the “cheat” disappear when a MAGA candidate wins

Campaign action

This includes Republican gubernatorial candidate Doug Mastriano, the U.S. senator who spearheaded his party’s 2020 legislative effort to thwart the election. Mastriano was also Jan. 6 rebels outside the Capitol. His own party deprived him of the chairmanship of the commission because of his ongoing efforts to declare the state election invalid. However, his main victory was not in question. “God is good,” he told his supporters, declining to answer questions about how his choice is so miraculously valid.

No MAGA candidate shouting fraud for 2020 – Ken Paxton in Texas, Herschel Walker in Georgia, JD Vance in Ohio, Ted Budd in North Carolina, Mehmet Oz in Pennsylvania – none responded to the question of how endemic fraud is is simply lacking in their own choices.

Jaime Harrison, chairman of the Democratic National Committee, was not surprised. “MAGA Republicans will do anything in their desperate pursuit of power,” he told the AP. “From undermining our democracy by spreading Trump’s Big Lie, to laying the groundwork to try to revoke votes when they disagree with the result, but to remain silent if they win, this is today’s Republican Party.

The danger lies in the distrust that arises, especially among Republican voters. An AP-NORC poll in February found that only 45% of voters believe their votes in the upcoming by-elections will be counted accurately. Only 24% of Republican voters believe this, compared to 66% of Democrats. This is very dangerous.

We have seen how far Republicans will go to perpetuate the Great Lie and lay the groundwork behind it. January 6 was an in-depth lesson there. The vast majority of Republicans elected – including all those who refused to allow independent yang. 6 commissions to exist and who refused to participate in the election commission of the Chamber – demonstrated that they are well with an armed uprising, with violence, if it will ensure their victory.

The big lie may be to withdraw from the speeches he made after winning the primers, but like Trump, they will spend the rest of the campaign sowing the seeds of distrust in the election, guarding against losing the general election. Because they want their supporters to be ready to repeat yang. 6, to intimidate election officials and their opponents. To incite strife and uncertainty and chaos. To deceive and threaten and beat the majority in obedience.

This is the republican way.
