The 2022 elections are, so far, shaping up to be better than Democrats had imagined. They're now favored to hold the Senate, and they appear likely to keep their losses in the House below the historical midterm average for the party that controls the White House.
ATLANTA (AP) — Outraged by false allegations of fraud against a Georgia elections employee in 2020, Amanda Rouser made a vow as she listened to the woman testify before Congress in June about the racist threats and harassment she faced. “I said that day to myself, ‘I’m going to go work in the polls, and I’m going to see what they’re going to do to me,’” Rouser, who like the targeted employee is Black, recalled after stopping by a recruiting station for poll workers at Atlanta City Hall on a recent afternoon. “Try me, because I’m not scared of people.” About 40 miles north a day later, claims of fraud also brought Carolyn Barnes to a recruiting event for prospective poll workers, but with a different motivation. “I believe that we had a fraudulent election in 2020 because of the mail-in ballots, the advanced voting,” Barnes, 52, said after applying to work the polls for the first time in Forsyth County. “I truly believe that the more we flood the system with honest people who are trying to help out, it will straighten it out.”

Wins in these states will give Democrats control of three additional (Arizona, Georgia, Florida) governorships, tying the two party’s at 25 – 25 if no other changes transpire.
DOJ, White House silent on status of lawsuit against Georgia's 'Jim Crow' voting law as midterms loom
Roughly 15 months after the Department of Justice filed a lawsuit against the state of Georgia over an election integrity law it deemed to be "racially discriminatory" and would suppress votes, the Biden administration has little to say about the status of that lawsuit and whether Georgia’s upcoming midterm election results will be tainted by the "Jim Crow" legislation.

Please Follow us on Gab, Minds, Telegram, Rumble, Gab TV, GETTR, Truth Social. In Georgia, Senate Bill 202 (the infamous “SB 202”) was passed after the disastrous 2020 election cycle, to clean up the perceived underperformance or malfeasance of the Secretary of the State and the various county election boards. No one was really sure what happened – they still aren’t, because there has been no meaningful investigation and the investigation conduction by the Senate Subcommittee was ignored after it found that “was chaotic and any reported results must be viewed as untrustworthy.”
