Hillary Clinton says Republicans are planning 2024 coup
Clinton says: “I’m here to highlight something that is keeping me up at night.”
Hillary Clinton is supporting a progressive political group that claims Republicans are planning a coup in 2024. It’s called Crush the Coup and it’s financially supported by the group Indivisible Action.
They say the MAGA movement has a plan to steal the 2024 presidential election, and they need to get state legislators elected in these six states this midterm election to help stop it.
It all revolves around the Independent State Legislature theory and the Supreme Court case Moore v. Harper. The justices will determine whether state courts can nullify and replace regulations for federal elections put in place by legislatures. The independent state legislature theory says only elected legislatures have the authority to regulate federal elections and state courts cannot interfere.
Clinton and Crush the Coup argue if the Supreme Court rules in favor of the state legislature theory, then Republican controlled legislatures could overturn the results in their states. But critics say Clinton is questioning the results of an election before it even happens and possibly spreading misinformation.
Clinton says: “Right wing extremists already have a plan to literally steal the next presidential election. And they’re not making a secret of it.”
The organization is targeting 29 districts which they say will help them either flip those state legislatures, or prevent Republicans from winning a super majority.
There six total in Arizona. There are five seats in Phoenix including two in the fourth legislative district, and one in Tucson.
There are five districts in Wisconsin that cover the state from the south east corner in Kenosha all the way up north in Superior.
In Michigan there are two districts in Detroit and one in Bay City.
There are five races in Pennsylvania ranging from Philadelphia all the way to Alleghany County and the Pittsburgh area.
Four contests in North Carolina, they go from Raleigh to just outside Charlotte.
Finally there are six districts in Georgia. All of them are near Atlanta and the surrounding counties. Straight from DC, I’m Ray Bogan.
