“Who’s Bankrolling Election Deniers?”

Issue One has a new report out that shows that election-denying secretary of state candidates have collectively raised more than $12 million for their campaigns this election cycle — including more than $5.8 million raised by election deniers who prevailed in their primaries and will be on the ballot this November.

Election deniers have emerged as the Republican Party’s nominees in roughly half of the 27 secretary of state races on the ballot this November. In two states with competitive secretary of state races this fall (Arizona and Indiana), election deniers are significantly outraising their general opponents, according to Issue One’s new report.

This is also true in two Republican-leaning states (Alabama and South Dakota), as well as in Wyoming, where there is no Democratic general election opponent, meaning the election denier nominated by the Republican Party in August after a competitive three-way primary is on a glide path to becoming the next secretary of state there.
