Larry Krasner is now poised to take over for incumbent Democrat Seth Williams, who is not running for a third term due to federal bribery charges.

Krasner is a civil rights lawyer who has previously defended clients from Occupy Wall Street and Black Lives Matter. He has vowed that if he wins he will never pursue the death penalty and that he will resist the Trump administration by keeping Philadelphia a “sanctuary city.”

As we previously reported, Krasner’s campaign has received nearly $1.5 million in funding from Soros.

On April 28, Soros gave a $1.45 million donation to Philadelphia Justice & Public Safety, a political action committee, which was running ads for Krasner. The billionaire financier has been donating to globalist candidates in district attorney and sheriff races across the nation since 2015.

Krasner has an entire segment of his platform titled, “Resist the Trump Administration.” The section outlines his plan to “protect immigrants,” “reject the drug war,” and “stand up to police misconduct.”

“As District Attorney, he will work to maintain Philadelphia as a ‘sanctuary city’ and protect the Fourth Amendment rights of all residents, cooperating with federal authorities only to the degree required by law,” Krasner’s website states. “Because legal proceedings can affect the status of immigrants and therefore relations between communities and law enforcement, Larry will take those effects into account when making prosecutorial decisions and setting prosecutorial policy. He will oppose renewal of ICE’s access to the PARS database, a city police database used by ICE to identify ‘deportable’ immigrants.”

Asa Khalif, one of Philadelphia’s most recognized Black Lives Matter activists, told The Intercept that he considers Krasner a friend, and has been volunteering with his campaign.

“Black Lives Matter — we don’t endorse candidates, but Larry is a friend,” Khalif said. “It is a strategy, it is game of thrones if you will. We have to play this game, and also be able to change the rules, but you can’t change the rules if you’re not in the game.”

“Protest is going to get us to the table, once we’re at the table we need to have an agenda, we cannot just keep screaming no justice no peace, we need to be in the mix,” Khalif continued. “We need allies in government that are going be true to their word. We have a lot of people who promise a lot of things; we need someone that we can pick up the phone and they will answer when we make that call.”

Krasner will now face off against Republican candidate Beth Grossman in the fall, though her chances in the extremely blue city are very slim.

Dr. Kelli Ward Reelected to a Second Term as Arizona Republican Party Chair

Ward received the full endorsement of President Trump.

Published

Dr. Kelli Ward was re-elected to a second term as the chair of the Arizona Republican Party on Saturday, with precinct committeemen and women narrowly voting to keep Ward in place. The physician and former Arizona State Senator had the benefit of President Donald Trump’s endorsement.

Ward narrowly won reelection 51.5% to 48.5% in a runoff election, defeating challenger Sergio Arellano. Arellano congratulated Ward on her victory and pledged to work on behalf of Arizona Republicans for victory in the 2022 midterm election.

The last two election cycles have proven difficult for Arizona Republicans. The state’s Republican Party, once dominated by establishment operatives loyal to Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake, has faced renewed competition in a once-reliably red state with a rapidly changing demographic and population model. Ward took over from Jonathan Lines after the 2018 election.

Republican Martha McSally was appointed to a Senate seat by Governor Doug Ducey, even after losing the Senate 2018 election to Kyrsten Sinema. McSally was again defeated by Mark Kelly in the 2020 election, giving the state two Democratic Senators. Some have speculated that President Donald Trump would’ve secured a narrow victory in Arizona in the 2020 election with a winning Senate candidate, having run ahead of McSally by tens of thousands of votes. However, Republicans have maintained majorities in both chambers of the state legislature.

Ducey, Jeff Flake, and Cindy McCain were censured by Arizona Republican Party precinct captains at the yearly state meeting. The latter two campaigned vociferously for Democrat Joe Biden in the 2020 election, largely eschewing any loyalty to the Republican Party in favor of the establishment Democrat politician.

Arizona is now primed to conduct its third US Senate election in as many election cycles, with Republicans receiving a second chance to defeat Mark Kelly, who is finishing since-deceased Senator John McCain’s 2016 term. Republicans such as Andy Biggs of the House Freedom Caucus, Debbie Lesko, and Matt Salmon have been suggested as Senate candidates in an election where the party will have an opportunity to regain its footing in the purple state.
