The Mid-Day Campaign Update
Republican candidates appear to have prevailed in two congressional special elections held Tuesday and Wisconsin. But as we all found out in November, 2018, the practice of “ballot harvesting,” i.e. rampant voter fraud, now means that appearances in California on election day can be deceiving.
First, there is no question that GOP candidate Tom Tiffany scored a resounding, 57-43% win in the election for Wisconsin’s 7th congressional district. That outcome in what is a rural, traditionally Republican district was pretty predicable going in.
But the apparent GOP retaking of California’s CD 25 is another story. That was one of several districts the the Golden State that Democrats managed to flip in 2018 with their massive after-the-fact vote fraud efforts. The district was held by sexual predator Katie Hill, who was forced to resign last year after her multiple affairs with young staffers became public news.
The district, which straddles the border between Los Angeles and Ventura Counties, is a roughly-even district in terms of voter registration. On Election Day 2018, Hill went to bed trailing incumbent Republican Steve Knight, after polling in the race had pretty much all indicated a GOP win was at hand.
But that was when the Democrats kicked their voter fraud, er, “ballot harvesting” operation into high gear, and a week later, Hill had “won” by a fairly amazing 22,000 vote margin.
As things stand today, Republican Mike Garcia holds an 18,000 vote edge over the Democrat in the race, Christy Smith. Given that this was a special election and turnout was no doubt lower than it will be in November when the two will face off again, you might think Garcia’s margin is pretty safe.
But let’s keep in mind that every one of the 425,000 registered voters in that district received a mail-in ballot – or at least we can be sure all the registered Democrats did – and California’s “vote harvesting” system will now allow activists to go door-to-door to see if they can convince voters to complete ballots after the fact for their candidate.
It’s an insane system that completely destroys all pretense of sanctity of these elections, but it is the law in California and the Democrats proved beyond all doubt in 2018 that they are far more adept at stealing these votes than their GOP counterparts.
So, don’t put this seat back in the Republican column just yet. And remember, as you watch Garcia’s margin grow smaller and smaller in the days to come that this kind of legalized election theft in a huge population state like California is the exact reason why the founders of this country had the tremendous foresight to create the Electoral College system for determining presidential winners. This is also why President Trump and congressional Republicans must kill all Democrat proposals to implement universal vote-by-mail for the November election.
The Electoral College and in-person voting must be preserved at all costs. And I do mean all costs.
That is all.
