This week, hearings and votes were taken up in Colorado, Missouri, Ohio, Virginia and Washington to flout restrictions.

U.S. President Donald Trump is seen on a screen attending the virtual APEC Economic Leaders Meeting 2020, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia November 20, 2020. His campaign has not provided evidence for its claims of widespread and coordinated electoral fraud. “Massive voter fraud will be shown!” Trump wrote on Twitter. Senior Republicans have remained largely silent about Trump’s unsubstantiated claims of election fraud or have defended his right to seek redress, but several voiced doubts on Friday. The single-day death toll surpassed 2,000 this week for the first time since late June, according to a Reuters tally.

Republican Senator Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania said Trump had “exhausted all plausible legal options” to challenge the result in Pennsylvania. He called on Trump to concede the election and congratulated Biden on his victory. UNPRECEDENTED EFFORTTrump is seeking to invalidate or change the election results through recounts and direct pressure on lawmakers in several states. They are asking question after question, telling the tabulators to stop, stop what they’re doing and that is out of line, that’s not acceptable,” Milwaukee County Clerk George Christianson told reporters. Biden, who has denounced Trump’s attempt to reverse the election results as “totally irresponsible”, spent Saturday meeting with transition advisers and attending church.

Nearly 200 legislators nationwide have tested positive for the virus and four have died from COVID-19 since the pandemic began, according to figures compiled by The Associated Press. Twelve Arkansas lawmakers have tested positive for the virus over the past month, the second largest known outbreak in a state legislature. But legislative leaders acknowledged that individual legislators couldn't be forced to wear masks. An outbreak among Missouri state senators that postponed a special session focused on federal coronavirus aid hasn't spurred a requirement for lawmakers there to wear masks either. House Republicans in Ohio have also rejected efforts to require that lawmakers wear masks at the Statehouse, and a statewide mask mandate issued by GOP Gov.

LGBTQ candidates once again made history in terms of the overall number elected to Congress and state legislatures across the country. However, many of them had to contend with homophobic and transphobic attack ads this election cycle. “Homophobic attacks are less effective against well-known candidates, because voters already know them,” Magni said. Several candidates experienced an unexpected boost in support and financing as a result of homophobic and transphobic attacks. After the homophobic attacks he shifted his message to “A voice for all.”“I’m a voice for all students, for all people,” Leos said.

In Texas, party officials plan a post-mortem to determine what went wrong, said the strategist, who is familiar with the thinking of party leaders. Biden lost to Trump in Texas, and the legislature stayed firmly in Republican hands despite years of demographic change benefitting Democrats. “The reality is that people vote on local issues, especially at the state level,” said Abrams, who is deputy executive director of the Republican State Leadership Committee. The 2020 elections are unlikely to alter the parties’ representational balance in U.S. state houses, where Republicans began with 52% of 7,383 state legislative seats, said Ben Williams, a policy specialist with the National Conference of State Legislatures. “They were really drawn with strategic data to make sure that we could not flip these state legislative chambers,” said Post, president of the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee (DLCC).
