GOP learns from the 2020 election
No matter how fiercely the media condemn “election deniers,” concerns regarding the 2020 election have made voting integrity a key campaign issue for the GOP.
More election integrity efforts: After the voter fraud controversies of 2020, election integrity concerns became a recurring theme for the GOP. Multiple red states passed strict laws on voter ID, absentee ballots, mail-in voting, and more. This year, leaders like Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and Virginia’s Attorney General established anti-voter fraud units.
Ahead of the midterms, prominent GOP candidates have campaigned on improving election integrity. The Republican National Committee recruited over 45,000 poll watchers “to ensure that November's midterm elections are free, fair, and transparent.”
The media’s “Big Lie” narrative: Establishment media outlets continue to condemn skepticism of the 2020 election as “unfounded allegations,” “baseless claims,” “lies,” or “conspiracy theories.” In reality, reports are still coming out of the pervasive irregularities of the election. These include last-minute voting rule changes in swing states won by Democrats, which courts have now determined to be illegal, and hundreds of millions of dollars in third-party funding that favored Democrats.
Big picture: A May poll found that 55 percent of U.S. voters believe “cheating likely affected the outcome of the 2020 presidential election.” Despite legacy media portraying those who advocate for stricter voting laws as divisive and baseless, this sentiment isn’t limited to one side. Election fraud claims weren’t seen as conspiracy theories back in 2016 when many Democrats and journalists called foul in the presidential election of Donald Trump.

The war comes to DeSantis
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ idea of flying migrants to blue “sanctuary” cities was not original, but his plan to send them to a small, well-off community caused a national panic that other Republican governors were unable to achieve. There’s now a class action lawsuit against him.
The lawsuit: Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis sent around 50 migrants to Martha’s Vineyard. It resulted in a panic that activated 125 national guard members to deport the migrants to a nearby military base. Three migrants filed a class action lawsuit against the DeSantis administration for “executed a premeditated, fraudulent, and illegal scheme … for the sole purpose of advancing their … political interests.”
The legal ground: Gov. DeSantis repeatedly claimed that all transported migrants from Florida signed consent forms. Some of those suing claim that they could not understand the documents and that the brochure given to the migrants was misleading. Essentially, they claim that they were tricked into flying to Martha’s Vineyard.
Where will this go? The lawyers for the migrants are lobbying the Massachusetts attorney general and the federal government to open criminal investigations into the Florida governor. The Biden administration is currently considering litigation.
Big picture: DeSantis’ critics and admirers view him as a more competent version of Donald Trump. His commitment to conservatism and his transformation of swing-state Florida into a conservative bastion of freedom when most states caved to the pandemic lockdown rules may soon land him in a position similar to the former president—swamped by political investigation.
