WHO IS A THREAT  TO DEMOCRACY IN YOUR STATE?

WHAT’S AT STAKE

On January 6th, a group of MAGA militants participated in an attack on our country by storming the United States Capitol. Republican state lawmakers were present at the insurrection, and hundreds more fanned the flames of insurrection by purposely sowing doubt in our elections for political gain.

Now, these election deniers, MAGA Republicans, and insurrectionists are running for office and seeking to gain a greater foothold in state legislatures. In 2022 we have the chance to keep them out of power and defend our democracy. 

BY THE NUMBERS

16

candidates on the ballot this November who were in DC on January 6th.

1,000+

state legislators and candidates complicit in Donald Trump’s ongoing attack on our democracy.

The Insurrectionists

The Insurrectionists

This list represents the worst of the absolute worst. All of these state legislative candidates were in DC on January 6th, with some who proudly cheered on the riots that left five people dead. Some of them were serving as state legislators at the time, and many joined the mob that surrounded the Capitol, attempting to interfere with the democratic process. We will not let them forget it.

On the 2022 Ballot

The candidates for state legislature on this list have helped spread Donald Trump’s Big Lie. Some used their positions of power to support legal efforts to discard the free and fair results of the 2020 election, while others used their platforms to spread baseless conspiracy theories and continue to falsely claim the 2020 election was stolen. Many have downplayed the events of January 6th, and some are even members of the extremist militia group the Oath Keepers that helped lead the assault. Many, if elected, have promised to act in accordance with their views. 

These candidates are a threat to our democracy and the stakes could not be higher this November.

Failed Insurrectionists

These individuals participated in the events in Washington DC on January 6th while serving in elected office or have since attempted to run for office. Whether they failed to qualify for the ballot, were arrested for their role on Jan 6th, or were defeated at the ballot box, our democracy is safer with these individuals out of office.

Out of the Running

Whether they resigned, lost, or were otherwise removed from office, these elected officials and former candidates all took actions or made statements that made them complicit with the Big Lie and the ongoing attack on our democracy, and this will forever be a part of their legacies. Our democracy is safer without them as representatives.

We want to hold every public official who is complicit in the attack on our democracy accountable. If you know of a state legislator or a candidate for state legislature who was involved with the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, helped fuel the deadly riots, tried to overturn the election results, or continues to spread the lie that the election was stolen, reach out to our tipline: accountability@dlcc.org
