Extremist Trump candidates put American democracy on the ballot

Democracy is on the ballot in 2022 with extremist Trump candidates running for office.

Many deny election results, spread conspiracy theories, associate with extremists, and push dangerous conspiracy theories. Vote for democracy as white supremacists and anti-government extremists are a threat to American democracy.

Democracy is on the ballot in 2022 with extremist Trump candidates run for office.

Far-right extremists in office

"The list, which continues to grow on a near-daily basis, includes at least a dozen candidates with explicit connections to extremist groups or movements including white supremacistsanti-government extremists and members of the far-right Proud Boys. Self-described “lifetime member” of the anti-government Oath Keepers Wendy Rogers, a Republican member of the Arizona State Senate running for re-election, has appeared on the antisemitic TruNews streaming platform and tweeted support for Nick Fuentes, a white supremacist leader and organizer." - ADL

Election subverters threaten fair elections

"Secretaries of state and state attorneys general have always been influential within their own states, but the attempted abuse of these offices to try to overturn the results of the 2020 election has finally awakened the rest of the country to their importance... This year, 27 secretaries of state and 30 attorneys general will be elected nationwide. And since the secretaries of state and attorneys general who are elected in 2022 will wield power in 2024, this year’s elections could plunge our democracy into further danger if would-be election subverters win them.

As the ones who oversee the administration of elections and the certification of results in most states, secretaries of state play a fundamental role in our democracy. And given their discretion to interpret and implement election laws in ways that either make it easier or harder to vote. " - Five Thirty Eight
