Gretchen Whitmer Michigan

Dangerous Lunatic Kari Lake Loses, A Final Loss For “Election Deniers”!

The highlight of the Midterm Elections of 2022 was the just announced defeat of Arizona “Election Denier” Republican gubernatorial nominee, Kari Lake, by Democrat Katie Hobbs.

Lake was the worst of the worst “Election Deniers”, and this dangerous lunatic is now a loser, who has no political future!

She represented the most dire threat to American democracy imaginable, along with also defeated Pennsylvania Republican gubernatorial nominee Doug Mastriano, who lost to Governor Elect Josh Shapiro.

So Arizona and Pennsylvania, along with Michigan, where Democrats gained control of the state legislature for the first time in four decades, along with Governor Gretchen Whitmer and the other state wide executive offices, sets up a great situation for the Presidential election of 2024!

Democratic State Governors To Watch, As Future Of Party!

Any concern about the future of the Democratic Party is gone, as once Joe Biden has become President for a second term, or decides not to run, opening up potential for other Democrats, the party has a “bench” of fantastic governors who care about public health and safety, and who are compassionate and empathetic human beings.

This is in reference to the following Democratic state governors, no special order:

Gavin Newsom of California
J B. Pritzker of Illinois
Josh Shapiro of Pennsylvania
Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan
Wes Moore of Maryland
Jared Polis of Colorado
Laura Kelly of Kansas

At least the first five listed are potential Presidential contenders in the future, and with Pritzker and Shapiro being Jewish; Whitmer (along with Kelly) being female; Moore being African American; Polis being gay; and Newsom being an original promoter of gay rights and gay marriage.

At the same time, the Republicans have potential Presidential contenders, who are more concerned about being nasty, vicious, divisive, confrontational, and have no concern about public health and safety, including:

Ron DeSantis of Florida
Greg Abbott of Texas
Kristi Noem of South Dakota

There is also Chris Sununu of New Hampshire (an exception, not as extreme and confrontational as the other three listed).

Of course, there are also soon to be former governor Asa Hutchinson of Arkansas; and former governor Chris Christie of New Jersey, who are more like Chris Sununu.

Additionally, soon to be former governors Larry Hogan of Maryland and Charlie Baker of Massachusetts come across as more decent, but like Hutchinson and Christie, unlikely to get very far in the Presidential race for 2024!

Potential Future Presidential Candidates If They Win Office On Tuesday

There are a number of Democrats running for the US Senate or the Governorships who can be seen long term as potential future Presidential candidates if they win on Tuesday.

They would include the following:

Tim Ryan running for the Senate in Ohio
Mandela Barnes running for the Senate in Wisconsin

Josh Shapiro running for the Governorship in Pennsylvania
Wes Moore running for the Governorship in Maryland
Gretchen Whitmer running for the Governorship in Michigan (reelection)
J B Pritzker running for the Governorship in Illinois (reelection)
Gavin Newsom running for the Governorship in California (reelection)
Beto O’Rourke running for the Governorship in Texas

Three Crucial Gubernatorial Elections Of Women In Upcoming Midterm Elections!

There are three crucial gubernatorial elections coming up in 11 days, that involve Democratic women who can prevent extreme right wing Republican attempts to interfere with electoral vote count in the Presidential Election of 2024.

They are incumbent governor Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan, facing a right wing lunatic, Tudor Dixon; Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs running for Governor against another right wing lunatic, Kari Lake; and Georgia gubernatorial nominee Stacey Abrams, running against her 2018 opponent Brian Kemp.

It is urgent and essential that all three win the Governorship, but they are not the only significant gubernatorial races, far from it!

12 Days To Go, and A Nail Biting Election Coming Up!

This author and blogger cannot recall the tension and emotions that are being felt around the upcoming Midterm Elections of 2022 ever being quite as intense in past cycles.

It could be a poor memory, or seeing the past with rose colored glasses!

But literally, EVERY Senate race, EVERY House race, and EVERY Gubernatorial race is so significant for the future of American democracy, which is on the verge of being lost to the MAGA Republicans and Donald Trump!

With only about six vote margin in the House of Representatives, and an evenly split US Senate for only the 4th time in American history, and with Governors having tremendous power and influence on an issue such as abortion rights, every citizen needs to vote!

Last night’s debate in Pennsylvania leaves one worried about the performance of John Fetterman, as it could be the Senate election that decides Senate control in the 118th Congress. But also, the Georgia race of Raphael Warnock; the Ohio race of Tim Ryan; the Wisconsin race of Mandela Barnes; the North Carolina race of Cheri Beasley; the Florida race of Val Demings; the New Hampshire race of Maggie Hassan; the Nevada race of Catherine Cortez Masto; the Arizona race of Mark Kelly; and the Iowa race of Michael Franken, are all crucial.

And Governorship races, particularly in Michigan with Gretchen Whitmer; in Arizona with Katie Hobbs; in Florida with Charlie Crist; in Texas with Beto O’Rourke, are all significant for the future!

Extremely Dangerous “Election Deniers” In Midterm Gubernatorial Elections

The Republican Party has more than half of its candidates for public office in Congress and the Governorships in November 2022 professing to be “Election Deniers”.

It is horrifying to imagine that many of these right wing extremists are likely to be elected.

But three candidates for governorships are particularly extreme in their defiance.

Doug Mastriano in Pennsylvania

Kari Lake in Arizona

Tudor Dixon in Michigan

Matriano’s opponent is state Attorney General Josh Shapiro.

Lake’s opponent is state Secretary of State Katie Hobbs.

Dixon’s opponent is Governor Gretchen Whitmer.

If all three of these extremists were elected, or even two of them, it would make it highly likely that the Presidential Election of 2024 would become a constitutional crisis, as they would work to refuse the possibility of the Democratic Presidential nominee to win the state’s electoral votes, in these three states, which are all crucial in future elections, as they have been in past elections.

Women Democratic Governors And Nominees Work To Insure Abortion Rights In Midterm Elections

The Democratic Party has a substantial number of women governors, and women gubernatorial nominees, who would insure that abortion rights would be restored or kept as they are, despite the Supreme Court move against abortion rights in June!

This includes the following Governors:

Laura Kelly of Kansas
Janet Mills of Maine
Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan
Michelle Lujan Grisham of New Mexico
Kathy Hochul of New York

Also, the following gubernatorial nominees:

Stacey Abrams of Georgia
Diedre Dejear of Iowa
Nan Whaley of Ohio
Nellie Gorbea of Rhode Island

And three open seats with Democratic women nominees:

Katie Hobbs of Arizona
Maura Healey of Massachusetts
Tina Kotek of Oregon

At this point, the odds would favor all five sitting Governors to be reelected; a tough battle for four nominees against sitting governors; and excellent possibilities for three open seats women nominees.

The elections most likely to gain attention are:

Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan
Stacey Abrams of Georgia
Nan Whaley of Ohio
Katie Hobbs of Arizona

Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer: Heroine, And Way Ahead Of Extremist Opponent Tudor Dixon In Polls!

Michigan’s Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer is up for reelection this fall, against a “MAGA” Republican extremist, Tudor Dixon.

This lunatic woman is scary, as she has no exceptions for rape or incest or life of the mother regarding abortion.

Being an Election Denier on the Presidential Election of 2020 makes her extremely dangerous, were she to be elected!

Fortunately, Whitmer is way ahead of Dixon in public opinion polls!

Whitmer is a true heroine, standing up to the responsibility of protecting Michigan residents from COVID 19, and being subjected to a threatened hostage seizure and possible assassination danger.

Two of those perpetrators of a kidnap plot have been convicted and will have long prison sentences.

Gretchen Whitmer will be seen in history as a woman of courage, principles, and doing the necessary job of protecting her constituents, even if they are not smart enough to understand science and health!

If she wins reelection, she is a potential choice for President, and will have many intelligent, ethical, moral people who would support her.

In any case, let us all wish for her health and safety, and that she can succeed in putting Tudor Dixon into the trash heap of history!

Looney Republican Women Running For Governor: Kari Lake And Tudor Dixon

The Republican Party has had looney women run for Congress and become an embarrassment, including, most recently, Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene and Colorado Congresswoman Lauren Boerbert of Colorado. But they have done little harm, other than to cause outrage, as they are a small element in the House of Representatives, who just make a lot of noise!

But now, we have looney women nominated for the Governorship of two states that were influential in the Presidential Election of 2020!

Arizona has Kari Lake as its nominee for Governor, and Michigan has Tudor Dixon as its nominee for Governor, and both are believers in the “Big Lie” that Donald Trump won the Presidential Election of 2020, and are unwilling to acknowledge that Joe Biden is the rightful winner of the Presidency.

Both Lake and Dixon make it clear they will do everything possible to deny the Democrats the electoral votes of their states in 2024, even if the Democratic Presidential nominee wins the popular votes in their states.

So both Lake and Dixon are deniers of reality, and are a threat to democracy’s continuation in their states!

Interestingly, both states will have a Democratic woman running against these looney Republican women.

Arizona will have Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, who insured despite threats, that Arizona had legitimately voted for Joe Biden in 2020, and is now the Democratic nominee for the Governorship.

And Michigan has the very courageous Governor Gretchen Whitmer, who was threatened by extremists in the state in the past few years, but stood tall and principled, and is running for a second term as Governor.

It is urgent that Arizona and Michigan elect these two competent, decent women over the lunatic and dangerous women that the Republican Party has foisted on the people of these states!

Second Wave Of COVID 19 Virus Is Coming, And Restrictions On Religious Services And Public Places MUST Be Enforced!

A second wave of the CoronaVirus Pandemic is emerging, and yet we have Donald Trump, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds, and a multitude of other Republican leaders refusing to face reality, and therefore, contributing to mass loss of life!

Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York, Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, and other Democratic Governors, and some Republicans, including Maryland Governor Larry Hogan, Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker, and Ohio Governor Mike DeWine, are acting responsibly, and what Cuomo is mandating in New York is proper.

Orthodox Jewish synagogues are being informed of tight restrictions, along with other fanatically religious Catholics, that if they do not enforce limits, the fines are $15,000 per offense, and that is what is required, as public health and safety must rule over those who are claiming to be “religious” but are willing to see major loss of life with their crazy fanaticism. The same goes for all public places, including bars, gyms, restaurants, stadiums and other such places of public gatherings!

Religion can be controlled when it endangers public health and safety, and this is such a time, with the greatest health crisis in a century, affecting the entire planet!
