Midterms aren’t just about control of Congress, a majority of states will be electing the person to serve as the Chief Executive of their state government. The people who occupy these positions have the power to halt radical right state legislatures run amok, like those who try to pass statewide bans on abortion (even in the case of rape and incest!). With a stroke of their pen, they can veto and put a stop to the insanity.
Robin and David run through some of the states where races are close, where they pose some intriguing matchups, and where you can make a difference, either by donating your time or money, or both.
Oh and let’s not forget those suddenly exciting Secretary of State elections (what?!), yes indeed, there are people on the ballot in some swing states who believe they should have the power to overturn or reverse the will of the voters by counting the ballots they choose while tossing out the others. It’s madness, and it must be stopped now!
