The New Yorker just published an exploration of how the entire 2020 presidential election could hinge of the state of Pennsylvania, and how the Trump campaign may try to highjack that state election.
Mark Medish, TMG’s president who also co-founded Keep Our Republic, a nonpartisan civic-engagement group focused on highlighting the unconventional threats to the election, spoke with The New Yorker‘s Eliza Griswold, sharing his organization’s perspective:
“Pennsylvania, like Wisconsin, North Carolina, and Michigan, isn’t only a battleground state … Pennsylvania has a Democratic governor and a Republican legislature. This political division sets up a potential dispute over who, in a contested election, can appoint special electors.”Mark Medish, co-founder of Keep Our Republic
Medish is joined by a number of former politicians — both Republicans and Democrats — raising the alarm about the Trump campaign’s efforts, including former Senator Gary Hart, former Representative Richard Gephardt, former Governor Tom Ridge, and former Senator Timothy Wirth.
