Something that happened the other night in Arizona

Finchem is already running the Big Lie playbook Team —  I wanted to send along a quick update on Mark Finchem, the terrifying new Republican nominee for AZ secretary of state.   On Tuesday night, as results were coming in, early returns looked bad for one of Finchem’s far-right allies. So he turned…

The most horrifying Republican nominee yet

“Ain’t gonna be no concession speech coming from this guy” Team —   Late last night, the news broke that Arizona Republicans have nominated Mark Finchem as their candidate for secretary of state.  That result is a disaster for democracy — and it could get so, so much worse.   Finchem is a self-proc…

This is a whole lot better than scrolling through the news

I’m asking you to join me right now. Well, we’ve made it to the end of July, which means we’re now exactly 100 days from Election Day.  In years past, 100 days out from the election was often a celebratory moment for supporters and activists — a rallying cry to gear up to run through the tape in No…

We all saw it. Here's what we need to do now:

We can’t wait a single moment longer - by 2024 it will be too late. If you just saw what I just saw, team, then you know we can’t wait a single moment longer to put a stop to Donald Trump’s 2024 ambitions. He’s not just your garden-variety egomaniacal, power-hungry politician — he’s actively laying…

“Steve Bannon’s man in Arizona”

Early voting has begun in Arizona, and Mark Finchem is leading Team —  Early voting has officially begun in the Arizona primary, and polls say election-denying, Capitol-riot-attending Mark Finchem is in the lead to be the Republican nominee for secretary of state.  It hardly needs to be said that D…

Trump’s pathway to a second term

His master plan is appalling -- and it's working Well, we knew this would be bad. We all watched Donald Trump try to stage a coup to stop the 2020 election certification, and we knew he stood by as a violent mob attacked the U.S. Capitol.  But we didn’t know just how much Trump pulled the strings b…
