A comparatively conservative Democrat eked out a narrow victory in Lousiana’s gubernatorial election on Saturday night. Incumbent Governor John Bel Edwards was barely re-elected in a narrow victory over Republican challenger Eddie Rispone.

As of Saturday night Edwards had a lead of just over 20,000 votes, a margin that is far from decisive, especially for an incumbent governor. Donald Trump had campaigned for Edwards’ challenger, Eddie Rispone.
While Edwards is a member of the Democratic Party, his policy alignments reflect that of a moderate or conservative rarely seen in the modern-day far-left liberal Democratic Party. Edwards is at least somewhat pro-life, having endorsed restrictions on late term abortions.
The sitting governor signed a six-week heartbeat bill into law, going further than many Republicans in legislating pro-life values.
In campaign ads, the sitting governor appeared reminiscent of a conservative Republican by wholeheartedly shoring up his support for gun rights.
Progressive and liberal commentators will try to frame Edwards’ extremely narrow victory as a sign of an incumbent blue wave in 2020, but it’s anything but. Almost none of the radical progressives Democrats are bound to nominate for statewide offices across the country will come close to the seemingly conservative or genuinely moderate positions Edwards espouses.
Democrats can learn from Edwards’ victory by making concessions to cultural conservatives on the vital issues of gun right and pro-life values, but they won’t. It’s almost guaranteed that the Democratic nominee for President in 2020 will be even more radical in support of unrestricted abortion and eroding American gun rights than ever before.
Georgia Lt. Governor Cries That President Trump’s Crusade Against Electoral Fraud is ‘Alienating Voters’
They’re blaming Trump for the fall-out of their own treachery.
President Donald Trump’s push against voter fraud in the state of Georgia is offending the state’s many RINO politicians who want to certify the fraud and move onto the senate races without so much as even improving the process.
“I do think the president and Republicans in general need to refine their approach to how we handle this post-election process,” Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan told CNN.
“I think there’s two parts that really are concerning to me,” he added. “One is the short term in the Senate election in making sure we don’t alienate any voters that we need to show up for Sen. [Kelly] Loeffler and Sen. [David] Perdue. And I think secondly, we run the risk of alienating voters longer term.”
Additionally, Duncan defended the reviled Governor Brian Kemp and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, who have offered only perfunctory responses after a tidal wave of Democrat electoral improprieties in the state. Duncan called Kemp “steadfast and strong,” and he called Raffensperger “a rock star conservative [who] comes to work everyday and does the right thing.”
Duncan made it clear with his remarks to the fake news leader that he is culpable in the voter fraud, and he wants to silence the hundreds of whistleblowers who have put their necks on the line to attest to grotesque third-world style improprieties at every level.
“It troubles me that some folks are willing, just for the sole intent of flipping an election, of spreading misinformation,” Duncan said. “I think we’re better than this. My hope is that we move past this here in Georgia and as a country. Certainly there are some better days ahead of us than what we’re in right now.”
Big League Politics has reported about the incredible betrayals of the Georgia Republican Party since the presidential vote, which has included Gov. Kemp’s lawyers arguing that saving Dominion’s trade secrets is more important than protecting electoral integrity:
Attorneys for the Republican administration of Georgia Governor Brian Kemp have argued that protecting the trade secrets of Dominion voting software is more important than getting to the bottom of severe electoral irregularities related to the controversial systems.
The National Pulse found key text in a court order preventing the deletion of key records in Cherokee, Gwinnett and Cobb counties. Kemp was listed as a defendant along with Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger in the civil action file that was approved by the courts to preserve potential evidence of fraud.
“Defendants’ counsel also argued that allowing such forensic inspections would pose substantial security and proprietary/trade secret risks to Defendants,” the order reads.
The pathetic appeal to protect Dominion was ultimately rejected by the courts, as the Plaintiffs suggested a process in which the voting software could be inspected lawfully.
“Plaintiffs’ counsel responded that Defendants’ concerns could be alleviated by an order from the Court (1) allowing Defendants’ own expert(s) to participate in the requested inspections, which would be video-recorded, and (2) directing the experts to provide whatever information they obtain to the Court — and no one else — for an in camera inspection,” the order states…
The GOP needs to realize that there is no other option but to oppose massive voter fraud right now. The party and the nation will die a spectacular death if Republican leaders refuse to do the right thing.
Cowardly Republicans in the state of Georgia apparently want a death sentence for the GOP. Lt. Gov. Duncan has made it clear with his comments that he is another Benedict Arnold protecting the Democrat heist of the presidential election.
