I'm going to give this a try and see if it goes anywhere. This will be a thread for all things related to:

  • Random news pertaining to gubernatorial/executive/legislative candidates
  • Scandals
  • Fundraising
  • Ballot initiative news
  • Whatever else you think is noteworthy but maybe doesn't need its own thread

My thought on this was not actually to cut down on threads on this board, but rather to try and encourage people to post things that they otherwise wouldn't have made a thread for.

There's some state legislative generic ballots floating around, so I'll post them here cause they really don't need whole threads. Thanks Virginia.

PPP; NC: 46-41 D+5
Glengariff; Michigan: 42-31 D+11

I'm not sure Minnesota counts, but it is perplexing that they were so emphatic about having no secretary of states in swing states, when they have the NC secretary.

I suppose MN is arguable, but yes. Marshall is the bigger omission.

For a guy who split the right-wing vote in 2010 (which didn’t really matter in the end), he sure shows awareness about him losing.

Federal District Court Issues Preliminary Injunction Barring NC Legislature’s Elimination of Partisan Primaries for Electing State Appeals and State Supreme Court Judges

For those no privy to what North Carolina GA Republicans did - they passed a bill eliminating judicial primaries, so that all candidates would just run on the same ballot. They said this was to give them time to redraw the judicial districts, and while this was partly true, obviously it means they wanted time to gerrymander the districts. Further, by eliminating the primaries, this would mean backed up lines at polling places and with such a long list of candidates, the incumbent and more well-known judges would gain an advantage. This means Republicans gain an advantage.

There are 2 state Supreme Court seats up this year, and one is a Republican. Knowing NC, even a wave environment doesn't guarantee anything, but Democrats should have a decent shot at it.

There are 2 state Supreme Court seats up this year, and both I believe are held by conservatives. Knowing NC, even a wave environment doesn't guarantee anything, but Democrats should have a decent shot at picking up at least one seat.

Will Missouri GOPers Be First To Pounce On Trump’s Census Citizenship Gambit?

Exactly like I was saying in ths Ross/citizenship census question thread - that Republicans are not being honest about why they are adding the question, and that it's primary purpose is to give Republicans a way to draw maps that favor their party even more:

https://uselectionatlas.org/FORUM/index.php?topic=291954.msg6203971#msg6203971

Meanwhile, their supporters love it mostly because it's a middle finger to undocumented immigrants / pro-immigration advocates, while establishment/partisan hacks love it because they want to game the system however they can because all that matters anymore to them is winning elections and holding power, no matter what it takes.

I know, Republicans in the past had built up a century long streak of statewide victories at the presidential level in the state.

GOP nominates a legal pimp in a Strong GOP district.  He defeated an incumbent, who is a hospital administrator.

Dennis Hof, AD-36, I think. Matt Isbell has an article on it:

The fact that a pimp accused of sexual harassment won't lose because of the partisan lean of an area makes me want to screech.
