Demo Strategy: Delegitimize Republican Election Victories

With no path to victory in sight, Dems in FL and GA continue to fight against election results.

Democrats in Florida have now lost the machine recount in elections for both governor and senator, yet they refuse to concede and continue to campaign as if the election were still going. The result of the Senate election is that Republican Gov. Rick Scott beat Democrat Sen. Bill Nelson by just under 13,000 votes. By Florida law, this narrow margin trigged a second recount, this one by hand, so one can reasonably argue that Nelson’s waiting for the end of the second recount is at least understandable.

However, in the race for governor, Republican Ron DeSantis maintained more than a 33,000 vote margin over Democrat Andrew Gillum after the machine recount, which is beyond the minimum threshold required for triggering a second hand recount. And yet Gillum still refuses to concede defeat. Why?

Then there’s the Georgia governor’s election, where Democrat Stacey Abrams has no chance of making up the deficit to Republican Brian Kemp, and yet she continues to press the courts to allow the counting of previously rejected ballots. She hopes find enough votes not to make up the mathematically insurmountable deficit to Kemp but to shrink his percentage down below 50% and thereby trigger a runoff.

It is highly unlikely that Democrats will succeed in their efforts to steal the elections in Florida and Georgia, so why all the lawsuits and delay tactics? It’s all designed to create a narrative for the future, while at the same time seeking to diminish the legitimacy of the vote if it goes the Republicans’ way. The narrative? The only reason Republicans won was because they suppressed the vote by refusing to accept “thousands” of votes and therefore they are a danger to the democratic process itself. Never mind that there is not a shred of evidence supporting this spurious accusation, and in fact, that Democrats were the ones caught engaging in lawless behavior. The mainstream media will happily “remind” voters come next election how Republicans sought to suppress the vote and the “will of the people” in Florida and Georgia, while conveniently ignoring Democrat shenanigans. Russian efforts to influence the 2016 election have nothing on Democrat schemes to undermine election integrity.
