Michigan GOP choose election-denying conspiracy nut as party leader

Election conspiracy theorist Kristina Karamo, who was overwhelmingly defeated in her bid to become Michigan’s secretary of state just last year, bested a 10-candidate field dominated by fellow far-right radicals to lead the state’s beleaguered, debt-laden Republican Party for the next two years.

Today’s Action: Phone bank TONIGHT to defend Virginia’s blue seat in Congress!

Virginia is holding a special election tomorrow to replace the recently deceased Rep. Donald McEachin, and we need all hands on deck to ensure the seat stays blue. Democrat State Senator Jennifer McClellan is running against a Republican pastor, Leon Benjamin, who has already lost his bid for the same House seat three times. It’s clear that the people of Virginia do not want Benjamin as their representative, but getting the word out about the special election to eligible voters in the state is key to securing a Democratic victory.

We can’t take any chances. Leon Benjamin is not only a Republican — he is a 2016 election conspiracy theorist who has recklessly questioned President Biden’s legitimacy to this day. It’s not only the president’s resounding election victory he’s denied — Benjamin also openly rejected the election of the late McEachin in 2020. To be clear, these elections were fair and square. Benjamin’s dangerous, out-of-touch denialism uses the very same rhetoric that resulted in Trump’s failed insurrection on January 6, 2021. The fewer conspiracy theorists we have in Congress, the better.

We can’t afford to lose ANY seats in the fight for progressive values. Tomorrow’s race is crucial. Attend a Get Out the Vote phone-banking session TONIGHT from 6-7:30PM EST! It’s all virtual, so you can help defend Virginia’s voice from the comfort of anywhere you see fit!
