Unbelievable election night. No matter what the results end up being, there is a giant cloud cast over the Kansas primaries. It could be a computer glich or some genuine shady shit but there needs to be massive investigation done beginning IMMEDIATELY

JoCo election commission: 1 encrypted USB drive for each of the 196 voting locations. Each one should take seconds to upload. Tonight, they are taking around one minute (or more).

Multiple that by 196 and you get a LONG delay

Officials cite ’slow reporting‘ for Johnson County vote delay

The county recently spent more than $10 million on 2,100 new voting machines. It’s unclear if Tuesday’s delay is connected to the new machines.

The results were key in determining the outcomes of two high-profile races: the Republican nomination for Kansas governor and the Democratic nomination for the 3rd Congressional District.

Can a liberal agenda that sells in the Bronx win over voters in Kansas?

(10.7.2018) He’d raised tens of thousands of dollars from liberals looking for their next cause, and finding it in the suburbs of Kansas City, with a candidate running proudly on “Medicare for all” and a $15 minimum wage.

“People keep asking, are these the kind of ideas that a candidate can talk about and be successful in Kansas?” said Welder, a 37-year-old labor lawyer. “What I’ve learned on this campaign is that the only way we can be successful is by talking about these ideas.”

Believe it or not, I receive nice letters from Republican voters who value 2 things: 1) I don’t take lobbyist $ 2) I’m honest about my views & listen to others

What’s frustrating to voters are folks who campaign on stances they don’t believe in. Hawaii: Vote @KanielaIng Aug 11.

Congressional Candidate Matt Morgan going door to door in Escanaba

„If you’re a primary voter and you’re coming out in three weeks to vote in the primary and you vote a democratic ticket, I just need you to find the House of Representatives line and write in Matt Morgan and fill in that bubble. I am the only candidate running for the House of Representatives as a Democrat so you just have to write in Matt Morgan and fill in that bubble.“

Technical issue could keep Democrat off ballot

(30.4.2018) The Michigan Bureau of Elections notified the Morgan campaign last week that it would not recommend the state Board of Canvassers certify the 1,543 petition signatures that he submitted in early March to qualify for the August primary ballot, the campaign said.

At issue was the use of the campaign’s Post Office box in the heading of the nominating petitions, rather than a street address.

Could progressive newcomer Sarah Smith upset 11-term incumbent in Washington primary?

Her opponent is on the House Armed Services Committee. Congressman Adam Smith has a long history in the 9th Congressional District. So who is Sarah Smith?

„I work full time,“ Sarah Smith said. „I manage a mechanic garage. I have student debt. I have a husband. I can’t afford to have a kid. I’m every person in this district.“

Who’s next? Progressive primary insurgents to watch

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s primary defeat of New York Rep. Joe Crowley on Tuesday hit like a shot of pure political adrenaline for progressives hungry to remake the Democratic Party.
The question now, as the last round of nominating contests comes into focus, is simple — and for parts of the party establishment, terrifying: Who’s next?

@Ocasio2018 led a movement. She rejected corporate donors. She took bold progressive policy positions. She collected petitions in the snow, and knocked on doors in the heat. The future of working people in New York is brighter today, and it’s because of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Fake News gegen aussichtsreichen linken Präsidentschaftskandidaten in Kolumbien

Laut aktueller Prognosen wird Petro gegen Iván Duque, den Kandidaten der von Ex-Präsident Álvaro Uribe gegründeten ultrarechten Partei Centro Democrático (CD), in der Stichwahl antreten.

Die falschen Meldungen basieren auf angebliche Aussagen von Petro in Pressekonferenzen oder Interviews mit leitenden Medien. Doch diese haben tatsächlich nie stattgefunden. Gemeinsam ist den falschen Aussagen, die Petro in den Mund gelegt werden, die Ankündigung von Einschränkungen der Freiheit der Bürger.
