After long refusing to commit to accepting the results of her race if she lost, Republican Kari Lake on Friday filed the legal challenge she's been threatening in the aftermath of losing the Arizona governor's race. A civil complaint was filed Friday with the Maricopa County Superior Court naming Secretary of State and Democratic governor-elect Katie Hobbs, Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer, Elections Director Scott Jarrett and both the office of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors and individual members. There are multiple falsehoods and distorted assertions included in the lawsuit that echo the failed legal challenges brought by former President Donald Trump’s team to overturn the 2020 election.

ATLANTA — The Democrats’ capstone reelection victory of Sen. Raphael Warnock forced Republicans to reckon on Wednesday with the red wave that wasn’t, as they turned with trepidation to 2024 and the intensifying divisions in the party over former President Donald Trump. Warnock’s 2-1/2 percentage point win over Herschel Walker in the Georgia Senate runoff left Democrats with a 51-49 seat majority in the upper chamber, a one-seat gain. That came despite dire predictions for a bloodbath for Preside

In our election coverage in the past, we’ve noted that despite their public outcry over numerous issues, white women continue to show up at the polls in huge numbers for candidates who are openly hostile to women’s interests. While pollsters and pundits told the country that Black men wouldn’t show up to support Democrat Stacey Abrams—the Georgia gubernatorial candidate who was a staunch supporter of reproductive rights—it was actually white women who did the work of sinking her campaign, voting
Kyrsten Sinema, the truly obnoxious manic pixie dream senator from Arizona, announced Friday that she’s switching her party affiliation from Democrat to Independent—just days after Democrats finally increased their Senate majority from 50 to 51, securing outright control of the chamber and its key committees. Democrats being able to do things during the next two years of Joe Biden’s presidency was apparently too much for Sinema, who prefers that nothing be accomplished in the senate, ever.

After yet another disappointing showing for Republicans in Georgia’s Senate runoff on Tuesday, some conservatives — like Sean Hannity, Newt Gingrich and Kevin McCarthy — have begun to point to a surprising culprit: a failure to take advantage of early voting. The theory seems to be that Republicans are losing because early voting is giving Democrats a turnout edge. It follows a similar conversation after the midterm elections, when a chorus of conservatives said Republicans needed to start encou
