We get started with a shot across the bow of the Democrats by the president.

All levels of government and Law Enforcement are watching carefully for VOTER FRAUD, including during EARLY VOTING. Cheat at your own peril. Violators will be subject to maximum penalties, both civil and criminal!

Pissing off the Dem base certainly played into eroding support, but I know at least in my mind it wasn't so much that she 'turned' left, or that I 'turned' right.

I voted for her proudly in her first bid because she was a heck of a State Auditor. But when in the Senate her first offense was flacking for ObamaCare. Then she sought re-election through a stealth campaign of propping up her weakest opponent in the primaries in order to avoid real competition. After what Missouri went through placing a housewife in the seat because her nice poor husband died during his campaign, that was just a little too much campaign hijinks from the Dems for me for the moment.

Absent those things, I wouldn't have given a moment's thought to her Kavanaugh vote. Even though the entire spectacle was disgusting, I could understand her voting against on a number of grounds, straight party, judicial philosophy, or the allegations, without holding it against her overly. Particularly as she wasn't vocal or grandstandy about it. That particular issue may have changed some minds, but mine was already made up, and I'd like to think that if she had my support before that I'd be open-minded about that single vote being decisive against her.

Somewhere down deep, she probably does have a quasi-centrist heart. Her bigger problem was; 1) the issues she decided to vocally toe the party line on, and 2) her political opportunism once in the Senate.

Is the main reason she lost both her and donnelly attacked their own party and got rocked.
It's just astounding how clueless you are.

Talk about projection, after all this whining about election fraud and Trump's constant bullshit, it is the GOP that is caught up in a legit case where actual evidence of election fraud exists.

You're welcome to guess as to the party affiliations of the various people indicted.

I honestly don't know the answer to that and you don't either. But I suspect that her party trying to derail a conservative man in a conservative state left some ucky on her when she voted with her party..... like she always does! Scratch that, DID :-)
All I can say, is I saw Hawley speak on Fox a few nights ago, and I was really impressed with him and how he speaks.

...THREE WEEKS AFTER THE ELECTION.

Ballot Harvesting
The old word for this was called "Ballot Stuffing". Jerry Brown made in legal in 2016 to add to Democrat's tools for stealing elections, and allowing people who shouldn't be voting to vote without checks. Of course, they only had third parties go door-to-door collecting ballots of Democrats.

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/bal...ia-republicans
It's not just happening in California. Democrats are changing election laws in other states too. Remember Alabama allowed convicted felons to vote.

Look what's happened in California so far, and could soon follow in other states.

1) Motor Voter Law. This meant that as soon as any California resident acquired or renewed his driver's license or state ID, he would be registered to vote automatically.

2) Automatic absentee ballots to everyone. State legislature authorized counties automatically to send absentee ballots to voters, even if they had not requested those ballots.

3) Changes to Ballot Custody
The rules governing ballot custody were changed so that anyone could turn in absentee ballots, not just the actual voter. ( This one is very scarey when you think of the opportunities.)

Ring warns that Democratic legislatures in states that went all blue in the last midterm – Democrats picked up six new houses and several governorships – were watching California very closely. They want what California has and are likely to pass the three laws California did to seal their permanent power entrenchment: Motor Voter laws that register voters whether they like it or not, absentee ballots mailed to voters whether they like it or not, and ballot-harvesting with no chain of custody by absolutely anyone.

Kiss the end to days when elections were decided on one day. Banana Republic here we come!

Florida didn't have enough extra absentee ballots for flip the state. They needed 80k but only had 60k.

She definitely had some game going on. I have posted here more than once that my small, insignificant county is blood red in recent voting history. Except Claire. I never did understand what rural Missourians seen in her. I know why she won, St. Louis loved her. But I didn't see (still don't) why my rural Missouri county voted for her. But, we did. :-)

As to the bolded, I was never a fan of hers to start. But when she voted for Obamacare and then started singing about it, ouch :-) I just have to think that was major blowback for her. I don't know if it was or not, but it caused me every since that vote to talk to co-workers, neighbors, the mailman, the kid bagging my groceries, etc. etc. whenever the topic would come up, just what that did to healthcare in America. Not to mention the cost to the taxpayers footing the bill.

And to sing that song in a state that was trending red anyways, damn!! Maybe she figured unemployment would pay more?:-)

So let me understand this: Democrats call "ballot harvesting" in NC done by one Republican "election fraud" but call "ballot harvesting" done in massive numbers by Democrats in California "democracy."

Sounds logical./sarcasm]

Can't make this stuff up!

I think elections are for an engaged responsible citizenry. If they can't vote with early voting available, or request an absentee ballot and send it in on their own, or bother to register on their own—but need laws to do it all for them, then that's vote welfare to me.

Maine GOP Calls for Investigation of Election Irregularities in 2nd District

The Maine Republican Party called on Maine Secretary of State Matt Dunlap on Thursday to launch an investigation into election irregularities it has uncovered in the controversial 2nd congressional district election held on November 6.
The party released evidence of those irregularities on Thursday: 17 sworn affidavits from voters who are residents of four towns in southern Maine that are part of the 1st Congressional District, who say that on election day, they were given ballots for the November 6 election in the 2nd Congressional District between Democrat Jared Golden and Rep. Bruce Poliquin (R-ME-02).

As Breitbart News reported, “Secretary of State Dunlap, a Democrat, declared Democrat Jared Golden the winner of the election on November 15, despite the fact that Rep. Bruce Poliquin (R-ME-02) received 2,632 more votes than Golden on election day, a consequence of the state’s implementation of a controversial ‘rank voting’ system.”

Flake's still being a little bitch, but the GOP got a judge through anyway.

Pence, who was presiding over the chamber, broke the tie by casting the 51st vote to confirm Kobes.
