"She's clearly the progressive candidate that can win in this race," said Gabby Seay, the political director for the union, which represents healthcare workers.

New emails show that Mark Meadows, Donald Trump's chief of staff, was involved in the bid to overturn the election.

Meadows' campaign to get the Justice Department to investigate the conspiracy theories is highly controversial as White House officials should not seek Justice Department investigations for political purposes.

In a weak field, Kathryn Garcia stands out as the candidate best prepared to run New York City. In a race that was supposed to be a clash between progressive and moderate visions for the city, Garcia has been managing to sidestep that fight with a message about competence. "Garcia gets it done" is her slogan, and she's widely praised for her track record as a manager in unglamorous city agencies including sanitation, environmental protection, and the New York City Housing Authority. Garcia does not have a lot of charisma, nor does she have an especially grand ideological vision. For eight years, New York City has had a mayor who seems bored.

Pennsylvania state Sen. Doug Mastriano is promoting an "Audit the Vote" campaign. The campaign's founders have promoted conspiracy theories about QAnon, "PizzaGate", and the 2020 election.

According to a joint statement from federal and state election security officials, the 2020 vote was "the most secure in American history."
