Our 2020 book is titled Divided We Stand: The 2020 Elections and American Politics. Among other things, it discusses the state of the parties. The state of the GOP is not good. Trump and his minions falsely claimed that he won the election, and have kept repeating the Big Lie.
Despite a draft report of a Republican-led election review that found more votes in Arizona for President Joe Biden, former Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens called on the state Friday to decertify its 2020 presidential election results.
The U.S. Senate candidate’s insistence that Arizona cancel the results of its free and fair election continues his promotion of the false notion that the 2020 election was stolen from former President Donald Trump.
Greitens and other Missouri Republican candidates are courting hard-right primary voters and have all played some role in either perpetuating baseless claims of voter fraud or indulging those who believe Trump won the election. But Greitens has been the most aggressive, traveling to Arizona and securing the endorsement of a far-right Arizona state senator close to the review. .
Greitens, who resigned in 2018 amid scandals that included allegations of violent sexual abuse and blackmail, is running in the Senate Republican primary against Attorney General Eric Schmitt, Rep. Vicky Hartzler, Rep. Billy Long and St. Louis businessman Mark McCloskey.
As recently as Sept. 15, Greitens posted a slickly-produced video featuring him and Arizona state Sen. Wendy Rogers, a Republican who has intensely promoted the review and has endorsed Greitens.
