Top Democrat Spreads NASTY RUMOR Ahead Of Big Election
(UnitedVoice.com) – Every election is the most important one. As America steams toward the November 2022 midterms, Democrats are ramping up the rhetoric. On Thursday, August 25, President Joe Biden said MAGA Republicans threatened democracy and called them semi-fascists. In races across the country, Democratic candidates are referring to their GOP opponents as extreme while ignoring problems in the economy, education, election integrity, race relations, transgender issues, and general “wokeism.”
Colorado, considered a solidly blue state, is no exception. Sen. Michael Bennet (D-CO) is fighting to secure his seat in the US Senate for six more years. The latest polls show him up by only five points, and the Cook Political Report downgraded the contest to “leans Democratic,” showing the race is tightening ahead of Labor Day weekend. Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold (D) is promoting fear, suggesting if Democrats lose to Republicans, Americans could lose their right to vote.
Colorado Secretary of State Promotes Outlandish Rhetoric
On the heels of the 2020 presidential elections, GOP legislatures evaluated their election laws to determine where they needed to enact common-sense reforms to reduce cheating and promote more voting. The Left alleged Republican state laws would suppress the vote ahead of the primaries. Yet, the opposite happened in GOP states, especially in Georgia, where Biden called reform laws voter suppression and Jim Crow 2.0.
So, is Griswold’s rhetoric more of the same?
Like most Democrats and press members, she alleged Republicans who care about election integrity were actually dangerous election deniers. Griswold chairs the Democratic Association of Secretaries of State (DASS) and is also running for re-election. She’s begging voters to pay attention to the secretary of state races to block GOP candidates from winning those seats. She contends America could lose its democracy as Conservatives supposedly strip them of their right to vote.
Griswold set up Democrats to represent those saving Democracy versus Republicans trying to strip it.
Griswold Faces Competitive Race
Griswold also faces a competitive race in blue Colorado. She’s facing off against Pam Anderson, a former county clerk who promised to keep politics out of the administration of elections. Anderson is a moderate Republican who pushed back against and bested Tina Peters, a former county clerk aligned with former President Donald Trump, for the GOP primary nomination. The UVA Center for Politics said Anderson has a shot at beating Griswold, and the race should be competitive.
Griswold acknowledged there’s a lot of enthusiasm in both parties. In 2018, she became the youngest secretary of state in the country. Republicans say she too often blurs the line between defending democracy and protecting her incumbency.
Still, it’s ahead of the holiday weekend and the unofficial launch of the campaign season, and voters can expect a slew of ads from Democrats accusing them of extremism. Will voters remember what happened from 2020 to 2021? Will they blame the Left for inflation or forget how they enacted Critical Race Theory (CRT) in some public schools?
This political season may be unlike any other.
