There’s a ton at stake in the upcoming midterm elections but the most important issue isn’t getting the attention it deserves.
Americans’ rights – such as reproductive, voting and LGBTQ+ – are all at risk this November. Perhaps the biggest issue, though, is that nearly 300 Republicans who in some way supported the Jan. 6 insurrection and the effort to overturn the 2020 election are on ballots across the country. An editorial in Triad City Beat (TCB) called seditionists running for election “the most pressing issue on the ballot.”
People who wanted to dismantle our system of government could soon be the ones in charge of it.
North Carolinians should be very familiar with these seditionists because seven of them are Republican representatives from North Carolina who are currently in the U.S. House of Representatives – Madison Cawthorn, Greg Murphy, Virginia Foxx, Dan Bishop, David Rouzer, Richard Hudson and Ted Budd.
Even though Cawthorn lost his primary and Budd is running for U.S. Senate instead of the House, there are actually 10 seditionists on the ballot in North Carolina, according to The Washington Post.
Bo Hines, Sandy Smith and Budd are all involved in toss-up races. Courtney Geels and Tyler Lee have no chance of winning their contests. Foxx, Murphy, Rouzer, Bishop and Hudson are running in favorable districts. A worst-case scenario would see North Carolina sending eight seditionists to Washington – seven in the House and one in the Senate.
As TCB’s editorial terrifyingly points out, “this does not include down-ballot candidates in county commission and school board races, which hold many dozens of election deniers across our 100 counties.”
Across North Carolina and the entire nation, it’s time for conservatives and Republicans to show they actually mean it when they say they love this country by not voting for candidates who want to destroy America.
