Mainstream Media Oddly Terrified of GOP Electing Secs. of State in Ariz. and Nevada

'I hate to be apocalyptic... '

(Ezekiel Loseke, Headline USA) The New York Times and Politico are freaking out about the chance that Republicans could win Secretary of State offices in Arizona and Nevada after doubling down on “the Secretary of State Project,” funded by cosmopolitan oligarch George Soros.

Soro’s “Secretary of State Project” was an attempt to get leftists in offices to observe elections. Democratic donors have stuck to this plan, outspending Republicans 46 to 1 in Secretary of State races for the 2022 election.

A 46-to-1 advantage would assuage most people in most situations, but it has proven little comfort for the mainstream media. Both NYT and Politico have publicly fretted over the office recently.

The NYT ran an article entitled, “It’s 2024. Trump Backers Won’t Certify The Election. What next, legally?” With the subtitle, “The question is most urgent in Arizona, where two of the former president’s loyalists may well become governor and Secretary of State.”

Notably, the Times never answered their own question, and opted to whine and doomsay throughout the peace. Indeed, the article begins with, “It’s a nightmare scenario for American democracy.”

While never pointing to any specific concern, the paper cited Richard Hansen, a UCLA-employed elections expert, who opined that, “You can imagine a lot of mischief with all the nitty-gritty stuff that nobody pays attention to.”

The NYT quoted an ‘expert’ willing to be more overt. Nathaniel Persily, who is “an elections expert at Stanford University,” said that refusing to certify elections would be “completely unprecedented.”  Persily continued to say, “I hate to be apocalyptic,” but the NYT‘s fever dream is a kind of electoral chaos that “our system is incapable of handling.”

Politico is just as anxious as the NYT. It ran a story entitled “Leading election denier is on the verge of leading Nevada’s election system.” This story quoted U.S. Rep. Steven Horsford, D-Nevada, who claimed claimed “running against one of five election deniers in the country.”

“We cannot let that guy get elected because he doesn’t believe in fair and free elections.”
