El-Sayed analyzes results of midterms

November 15, 2022 Detroit Metro Times

Abdul El-Sayed, Detroit Metro Times: "Democracy was decidedly on the ballot these midterms. Dozens of election deniers were running for seats involving elections administration. Several won, just not in communities where they can influence important national elections (e.g., an election denier overseeing elections in beet red South Dakota has far less consequence for our elections than one in Michigan or Wisconsin). Regardless of the back and forth over whether the threat to democracy was the right closing message for Democrats, it’s clear that we could have come out of this election with far grimmer prospects for our democracy."
