Friends, I know you're all excited about the 2022 midterm elections, when we have a chance to retake the House and Senate. We also, however, have the opportunity to pick up a lot of Governorships in purple states. And that could in turn prove decisive in 2024, because GOP Governors (and Secretaries of State and Attorneys-General) will be in a position to prevent the kind of electoral abuses that marred the 2020 election.

The January 6th boosters are still at it, trying to foster a narrative that condemns all Trumpers and Republicans as "insurrectionists".

And, if you believe that, I've got some beachfront property in Kansas to sell you.
