In total, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative funneled more than $400 million to election efforts, most of which was siphoned through the Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL), a non-profit run by a former Obama fellow."
“The pivotal state of Georgia was one of the biggest targets of these funds, ultimately receiving one of the largest allocations of Zuckerbucks in the nation. Unfortunately, these grants had an impact on not only the way the election was conducted, but also on how it turned out.”
And it wasn’t just Perdue who got spanked last night. Trump also endorsed Jody Hice for Secretary of State after Raffensperger ignored his demands to “find” x number of votes so the election could be flipped. Raffensperger won his primary.
Trump had also endorsed John Gordon for Attorney General for the state. The incumbent, Chris Carr, also won that race by a wide margin (he carried 73.7% of the vote).
It is noteworthy that these are the key figures in the state that followed their constitutional duty rather than caving to the big lie. The takeaway seems to be that Georgia republicans are sick and tired of Trump’s incessant whining about losing the 2020 election and pushing the big lie to stroke his ego.
I’ll add that I voted for Kemp, Raffensperger, and Carr.
I find his endorsement record astronomically good.
Something was up with Kemp and Perdue and the GA voters. Perdue never had a chance and Trump backed him and he ran anyway. It is OK to have a setback or two or more…it produces humility that we never see from the party of inflation.
Nobody said “JUST to provoke libs.” I agree that there have been people who have unequivocally stated that at least it triggered libs. Stuff like that. (And it has.) But let’s not use that as a springboard to rewrite history.
