I’m excited to be at @HowardU for this launch & conference on democracy & journalism. Gorgeous campus, brisk fall day, wee robots out front, a chance to meet new people & see old friends. twitter.com/i/web/status/1… Image
Here’s a “democracy toolkit” for journalists:
democracytoolkit.press
Fascists, dictators, autocrats, & demagogues see a free press as enemies to be co-opted, muzzled, jailed, or murdered, preventing the immune system of democracy from debunking viral lies & revealing corruption. ImageImageImage
We must understand that when it comes to democracy and equality, neutrality is an abdication of duty, says @nhannahjones, who says a culture of balance & covering “both sides” impedes the ability of journalists to inform the public of threats to those ideals. #DemocracySummjt Image

#ElectionDay came and went with most disappointed the highly anticipated #RedWave didn’t leave Florida. But, with key races from #Midterms still being tabulated, all eyes are on to see who will prevail.

However, most have missed important concession speeches these last few days.
On the night of November 8th, some Republican candidates conceded pretty early. A few without any official results called from any major media outlets.

In this thread, I’m going to expose these RINOs for not even trying to contest the count well before the state cert deadlines.
Let’s start with the state where I live and saw the concession first hand, Colorado.

In District 8, @Kirkmeyer4CO (one tough woman endorsed by our local police/first responders) ran against @YadiraCaraveo (Latina daughter of immigrants endorsed by @PPFA and Dems from across CO)

How do you get people to notice crumbs?

Do you believe in coincidences?

Donald trumps restoration of power has been predetermined.

Who are these people?

Here's tweet.

Why is THIS important?

What distracts us from .@HillaryClinton & the Uranium One scandal?

#Russian #ElectionDay meddling?

.@POTUS45 called out #Russa hoax.

Russia hoax distracts from Uranium One & other things like stealing elections.

This looks like .@TedTurnerIII Bill Gates Sr. .@georgesoros David Rockefeller , Irene Diamond, Brook Astor & Leonore Annenberg.

Again, who are these people?

Can you connect the dots?

Where will these crumbs take us?

Alright, I promised a thread, didn’t I?

The #Midterms2022 didn’t go as we expected because they had to cheat us out of a Red Wave and I can prove it.

PS: @elonmusk, if your algorithm bands me during this, I’ll never forgive you.
Let’s start with Michigan. Voters came out in sweeping numbers. So much so that they felt threatened enough to ballot dump more than once in the race between Tom Barrett and Elissa Slotkin

The balance of power in Congress is on the line after #ElectionDay.

Many races across the country are too close to call while others were called.

Here's where things stand right now ⬇️
latimes.com/projects/2022-…
At his election night party Tuesday, Kevin McCarthy was heralded as the next speaker of the House.

But Republicans on Wednesday found little to celebrate as disappointing results rolled in from battleground districts across.

latimes.com/politics/story…
Republicans have a much easier path to securing the 218 House seats required to claim a majority. As of Wednesday morning, several races remained too close to call.

But it also appears that any GOP majority will be far slimmer than McCarthy had hoped.

It's the day after #ElectionDay.

Results continue to pour in as ballots across #California continue to get counted.

Here's a look at what races and decisions have been called and which are still undecided. ⬇️
latimes.com/projects/2022-…
California voters handed Gavin Newsom a second term as governor, choosing the incumbent over Brian Dahle, an unfamiliar Republican state senator from Lassen County.

latimes.com/california/sto… Image
The governor’s race was the first to be called after polls closed on election night.

In early returns, voters appeared ready to give Democrats another turn in other statewide contests and continue a decades-long hold on constitutional positions.

Mis primeras reflexiones sobre las midterms:

1) Por enésima vez @POTUS calló a sus críticos superando todas las expectativas. Sus constantes éxitos son producto de su retorcido colmillo político y del hecho de que sus rivales suelen darse un escopetazo en el pie subestimándolo.
2) Trump es veneno electoral. Su freak show de conspiracionistas y negacionistas lastró al GOP y quizá esto detone la guerra interna que el partido ha tratado de evitar para no dividirse.

3) DeSantis tendría que aprovechar su arrollador triunfo para degollar a la bestia naranja.
4) Si DeSantis y el viejo establishment republicano se atreven finalmente a desafiar a Trump, el energúmeno no va a retirarse pacíficamente, tratará de destruir al partido y tiene suficientes fanáticos incondicionales en la base para garantizar la derrota del GOP en 2024.

Another #ElectionDay is in the books.

By scoring two big wins for Democrats, Josh Shapiro and John Fetterman made points that reverberated nationwide.

We'll have live updates all day long ⤵️ inquirer.com/politics/elect…
Josh Shapiro won his bid for governor, defeating State Sen. Doug Mastriano, who ran a hard-right campaign that railed against COVID-19 restrictions and “wokeness."

“Real freedom won tonight,” Shapiro told his supporters.

John Fetterman will be Pa.'s next U.S. senator after defeating Mehmet Oz in the most expensive Senate race in the country this year.

"I never expected that we were going to turn these red counties blue but we did what we needed to do," said Fetterman.

🇺🇸🔴 Se vi siete svegliati ora, ecco una sintesi di tutto quello che dovete sapere sulle elezioni di Midterm di stanotte:

🧵
#Midterms2022 #ElectionDay
🇺🇸 1. Il controllo della Camera e del Senato non è ancora certo, e in attesa degli ultimi dati si può dire che i repubblicani abbiano avuto una performance sotto le aspettative degli ultimi giorni.

#Midterms2022 #ElectionDay
🇺🇸 2. Alla Camera ci si aspettava di passare da una maggioranza Dem di 8 seggi a una repubblicana fra i 25 e i 40 seggi, ma in questo momento non è neanche chiaro chi avrà la maggioranza.
Lo scenario più probabile è una maggioranza risicata Rep (5-10).

1/ A Texas Supreme Court ruling opens up the possibility that ballots cast in the state’s most populous county after 7 p.m. on #ElectionDay won’t be counted. #TXlege #TX2022 bit.ly/3UpQMxc
2/ The Texas Supreme Court ordered Harris County election officials on Tuesday night to separate out ballots cast during an extra hour of voting that had been granted by a lower court, setting the stage for a possible legal battle.
3/ The order to keep polls open an extra hour until 8 p.m. at nearly 800 polling places came after the Texas Organizing Project sued Harris County, citing issues at numerous polling locations that opened more than one hour late on Election Day.

🇺🇸 Siamo circa a metà di questa nottata elettorale: facciamo il punto su quello che sappiamo fin qui.

🧵 1/5
#Midterms2022 #ElectionDay
🇺🇸 Il primo dato che emerge è che i Repubblicani sono avviati verso un recupero di circa 3 punti rispetto al 2020. L'unica eccezione è la Florida, dove c'è stata una disfatta per i Democratici.
Insomma, un'onda repubblicana, più che uno tsunami.

2/5
#Midterms2022 #ElectionDay
🇺🇸 Questo si traduce in un vantaggio Repubblicano nelle proiezioni sulla Camera che si è assottigliato rispetto a quello di inizio serata.
Lo scenario più probabile vede i Rep recuperare circa 15 seggi, lievemente sotto le attese.

3/5

🇺🇸 A minuti potrebbero arrivati i primi risultati ad alimentare il famigerato "Needle" del @nytimes, che indica una proiezione in tempo reale della probabilità per i due partiti di ottenere il controllo delle due camere e i risultati dei singoli stati.

#Midterms2022 #ElectionDay Image
@nytimes 🇺🇸 È live il #Needle del @nytimes, che indica che i repubblicani hanno il 76% di chance di ottenere il controllo della Camera, mentre il Senato vede un testa a testa con i democratici lievemente favoriti.

#Midterms2022 Image
🇺🇸 Queste le singole proiezioni sulle corse del Senato per il @nytimes. Fra le 7 corse più competitive (N.H., Ariz, Nev, Pa, Ga, N.C., Wis) i Democratici hanno bisogno di vincere almeno 4 stati per mantenere il controllo del Senato.

THREAD: Here are the stories I've published so far for @snopes on #ElectionDay.

First, here are data+sources for each election year going back to 2000 showing all votes did NOT used to be counted by election night. Share with conspiracy-prone friends. snopes.com/fact-check/ele…
Second, a false rumor about Sharpie pens and Illinois ballots was going around on Twitter this morning.

The Illinois State Board of Elections (@illinoissbe) tweeted the facts: "Sharpies are an approved ballot marking device for many voting systems." snopes.com/fact-check/sha…
Third, here are the facts about today's Maricopa County vote-tabulation machine issues, which a spokesperson referred to as "minor."

PLUS: Here's how people in the Arizona county can track their ballot online and confirm that their vote was counted. snopes.com/news/2022/11/0…

It’s going to be murderously difficult for Democrats to win in #Georgia tonight, not because Abrams & Warnock have been rejected by voters, but because new vote suppressing laws have made voting by mail & dropbox—overwhelmingly used by Democrats—nearly impossible. #ElectionDay

IMPORTANT: We have yet *ANOTHER* unreported, unlisted polling place change in Mississippi—this time in Hinds County's Precinct 45.

Multiple voters told us they went to vote at their polling place this morning only to find it's no longer a polling place. 1/mississippifreepress.org/28941/mississi…
This a.m., @bluecanarykit told us she went to vote at McLeod Elementary, only to be told Precinct 45 had moved to St. Philip's Church.

I called Hinds Circuit Clerk's office at 11:21 am, where an official insisted Precinct 45 was still at McLeod. NOPE. 2/

Later, another voter told @MSFreePress they, too, were turned away at McLeod Elementary and told to vote at St. Philip's Episcopal Church.

I called the circuit clerk's office back at 12:29 p.m. An official again said McLeod was the correct location. 3/

Wählt doch einfach auf Papier, anstatt mit Wahlmaschinen, liebe USA 🇺🇸. HIMMEL
#CNN Reporterin hat die Probleme soeben live on air in #Arizona bestätigt. 20% der Ergebnisse werden durchschnittlich nicht korrekt gezählt derzeit, bestätigt auch der Wahlleiter. Sagt aber auch, dass die Stimmen manuell nachgezählt werden und nicht verloren gehen würde. Chaos‼️

For most voters, casting a ballot is likely to be trouble-free.

But baseless claims about election fraud have sowed distrust of voting machines, and led conservative groups to recruit poll watchers to challenge some voters’ registration status.

Violence or threats at a polling place should be reported to police via 911, and to the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division.
