Mark Medish, President of The Messina Group, co-authored an op-ed for Politico about Trump weaponizing the presidency to dampen voter turnout in November. Timothy Wirth, Joel McCleary, Gary Hart, and Medish outline specific steps that should be pursued at both the state and federal levels to protect our election.
“Trump has several levers to pull if he were determined to upend the election. And given his record of dismissing the restraints built into our system – recently firing five inspectors general in the span of six weeks, for instance – voters should be concerned that Trump will take advantage of these options. And activists, governors and lawmakers should understand what they are, so they can prevent the subversion and protect U.S. values.”
