You’re listening to the American Democracy Minute, keeping YOUR government by and for the people.

We, like many other Democracy observers, are concerned with the number of election-denying candidates who ran in the midterms. Many Big Lie candidates lost by big margins. But in some races, the support for candidates who oppose Democracy is breathtaking.

In Michigan, we’ve reported on Matthew DePerno, who ran for attorney general while being investigated for his involvement in seizing and breaking into optical ballot readers in Michigan counties after the 2020 election. His opponent and incumbent attorney general asked for a special prosecutor and there is an ongoing investigation. He lost on November 8th, but 44% of Michigan voters cast their votes for him.

In Arizona, Mark Finchem, an election denier who attended the January 6th insurrection, is still contending to be Arizona’s Secretary of State. With 75% of the vote in, Finchem has garnered 47% of the vote to his opponent’s 52.4%. Gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake, who has said she would not have certified the 2020 election, trails her Democratic opponent, but with 49.7% of the vote as of November 10th.

In a race too close to call in Nevada, U.S. Senate candidate Adam Laxalt, who has questioned the outcome of the 2020 election, is leading in the race with 49.4% of the vote, with 84% of the ballots counted. Nevada Secretary of State candidate Jim Marchant, who opposed certifying the 2020 election, leads with 48% of the vote.
