In some American states, the mid-term vote discrepancies seem to have been a dress rehearsal for 2020, President Trump’s re-Election year.
So many strange things have been happening since Tuesday, November 6, 2018, especially in Florida, where a state-wide recount took place.
Here is a partial summary of vote discrepancies.
Katie Arrington (R) ended up losing narrowly to Joe Cunningham (D) in a bid to represent South Carolina’s 1st District in Congress.
On election night, The State reported (emphases mine):
With 52 percent of results now in from the slow-moving 1st District race, Arrington maintains her lead of 53 percent to 47 percent for Cunningham.
The next morning, The State reported that Cunningham had won in a surprise upset:
COLUMBIA, SC — In a stunning upset, a Democrat has won South Carolina’s coastal 1st District for the first time in 40 years.
Political newcomer Joe Cunningham narrowly defeated Republican state Rep. Katie Arrington Tuesday, flipping from red to blue a district that Republican President Donald Trump won by 13 points just two years ago. The Associated Press called the tight race at 2 a.m. Wednesday …
Cunningham will replace U.S. Rep. Mark Sanford, the Charleston Republican whom Arrington beat in the June GOP primary after highlighting the two-time congressman’s criticisms of Trump and pledging to support the president’s agenda in Washington, D.C.
Meanwhile, all five of South Carolina’s incumbent congressmen kept their seats in landslide victories.

New Mexico discovered several thousand Democrat votes after a Republican candidate gave her victory speech:
Keith Ellison won his bid for Minnesota attorney general, despite being investigated for domestic abuse against his former partner:
It’s not just fraud. Add to that voter stupidity.
Ellison had represented Minnesota’s fifth Congressional district since 2007 and was appointed as Deputy Chair of the Democratic National Committee last year, so he certainly had name recognition.
Scott Walker (R) lost his re-election bid to Wisconsin’s governorship to Tony Evers (D) by just over one percent. Hmm.
One Wisconsin voter, Bev, was furious:
Her message is an important one, even though it is all one paragraph. It explains how the Dems know how many fraudulent votes to manufacture.
Arizona’s Senate race was controversial. Military veteran Martha McSally (R) lost to Kyrsten Senema (D), raising eyebrows in a state where a Republican — i.e. the late John McCain — was Senator for many years:
By November 10, votes were still being counted — continuing in Sinema’s favour:
That day, The Epoch Times stated:
On Friday night, the lead was about one percentage point of the two million ballots tallied, with Sinema at 991,433 votes and McSally at 971,331 votes. Some 80,000 ballots were submitted to the state from Maricopa County, tilting towards Sinema by more than 11,500, reported 12 News. More than 400,000 remain to be counted statewide, most from Maricopa.
Sinema for Arizona campaign manager Andrew Piatt said in a statement that Sinema will win. “Kyrsten will steadily build her advantage and be elected to the U.S. Senate. She will win this race,” he said.
And, lo, she had.
On November 12, Ricochet said that McSally had been too cautious a candidate and was unprepared for a determined Democrat GOTV (Get Out The Vote) campaign:
The Pima County Republican is very cautious. Very cautious. Instead of barnstorming the map and mixing it up with all comers, she carefully issues press releases and attends controlled events. She wouldn’t even agree to a debate with Sinema for months and then only participated in one …
McSally hails from Pima County, home to Tucson, while Sinema is from Maricopa County, home to Phoenix. More than half the state’s population lives in the latter, so they didn’t know much about the Tucson-based candidate. She needed to spend a lot more time defining herself since Sinema was already defined to a big chunk of Arizonans …
If the GOP wants to win in the Grand Canyon State, they can’t rest on their party registration advantage and old trends. Instead, great candidates need to run great campaigns and, at the very least, keep up with Democratic GOTV innovations.
Larry Schweikart, who watched the mid-terms closely, has this analysis:
Sinema is, at heart, a radical. However, she was careful not to expose that side to the public.
I still maintain there were suspect votes in that count. So does the president:
As I write, the final recount totals appear to be in for Florida.
The initial count was still going on for two days after the election:
Senator Marco Rubio (R) pointed out that counties hit by Hurricane Michael were capable of getting their vote totals in on time:
That day, Rubio went further. Fox News reported:
Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio on Thursday charged that two Democrat-controlled counties in the state, in possible violation of election law, have been reporting a “slow drip” of tens of thousands of additional ballots favorable to several Democratic candidates for statewide office, including incumbent Sen. Bill Nelson.
Liberal lawyers, Rubio said in an extraordinary series of tweets that alleged incompetence if not outright complicity by Florida officials, are “descending on” the state in a calculated attempt to “change the results” and “try and steal” races for Senate and agriculture commissioner.
Some former Floridians now living out of state received Florida ballots. Interesting:
President Trump was aware of the situation in the Palm Beach – Fort Lauderdale area:
Gateway Pundit discussed what was going on in Broward County (Fort Lauderdale) on November 8:
The US Senate candidates in Florida received 24,000 fewer votes than the Gubernatorial candidates.
How is this possible? (We know the answer already) …
Breaking update: Governor Rick Scott & the NRSC are filing a public records lawsuit against Broward election supervisor Brenda Snipes for failing to provide them with information about outstanding ballots that have yet to be tabulated
The lawsuit comes as Scott’s margins are shrinking v. Sen Nelson …
That same day, Gateway Pundit carried an eye-witness report on ballots in Broward County (emphasis in the original):
Florida voter JoAnn Knox captured Broward County Election Officials Transferring Ballots in Rented Truck on Election Night!
The article includes her full statement from Facebook, which makes for shocking reading.
Former Independent candidate Tim Canova tweeted this video:
More reports emerged:
On November 9, it looked as if Mike Caldwell (R) had lost his bid for Florida’s agricultural commissioner to Nikki Fried (D). The News-Press reported (emphases mine):
Caldwell thought he had edged out a victory in the agricultural commissioner race Tuesday night when he had about a 40,000 vote lead over Democratic candidate Nikki Fried.
But the latest vote count shows Caldwell losing by 3,120 votes to Fried. The difference between the candidates is .04 percent, signaling an automatic recount, and a likely manual recount.
“Over the course of the last two and half days, the Broward supervisor has continued to magically find boxes of ballots that have potentially altered the course of the race,” Caldwell said in an interview Friday. “And after all that time, we still cannot get a straight answer as to where they came from, when they were cast. We just heard there is another magical box of 2,100 ballots they supposedly found here (Friday).”
He said what is happening in Broward County is unacceptable.
Fried, he said, is from Broward County. Fried’s campaign team had no comment to make to News-Press at that time.
Florida’s congressman Matt Gaetz (R) had this to say about Florida’s election count in Broward:
In Palm Beach County, Democrats wanted non-citizens’ votes counted:
It seems as if Rick Scott (R) won his Senate seat by a narrow margin. Here’s the GOP chairwoman offering her congratulations. Incidentally, she is Mitt Romney’s niece:
Nelson was hanging tough, though:
It also looks as if Ron DeSantis (R) won the governorship over Andrew Gillum (D), again by a slim margin.
President Trump said:
This is how many votes Broward County’s election commissioner managed to find:
On Sunday, November 11, a criminal investigation was launched into voting in Broward and Palm Beach counties. According to the Gateway Pundit, all Florida counties met a deadline for final vote tallies on November 10.
Even so, on November 11, investigative journalist Laura Loomer who was in Fort Lauderdale at the time, reported a ‘bomb threat’ was declared at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. Another box of ‘provisional votes’ had been spotted in a rental car last driven by a Broward County employee (this man, perhaps?). Laura Loomer has more on her website. Here is a brief video of an interview of a Republican Party lawyer. Here is another video of hers explaining what the sheriff’s office had to say. She alleges that some of his law enforcement officers are embarrassed.
She also managed to obtain a frank statement from a Democrat attorney on destroying votes:
Indeed, because as someone else explained, quick destruction means no trail:
On November 12, the Gateway Pundit reported that vote count irregularities had also occurred in Georgia and California:
Democrats have mysteriously found thousands of new votes in Georgia on Saturday after losing the governor’s seat on Tuesday.
And now several California Republican candidates who led their races by significant margins on election night days later are losing their seats as Democrats produce new votes several days later.
President Trump had set up an election commission to address fraud in 2017. However, because so many blue states refused to co-operate, it had to be abandoned in January 2018.
It’s apparent that something concrete and effective must be done before 2020 about vote fraud, which, contrary to what Democrats and their water carriers in the media say, does exist.
Enforcing the laws would be a start. Getting rid of early voting weeks before an election would be another. Stipulating that absentee votes must arrive on or by election day would be another. Non-citizens must be prohibited from voting (the Motor Voter programme registers nearly everyone applying for a driver’s licence). At least Texas governor Greg Abbott will investigate that in his state.
Until then, by golly, what a dress rehearsal by the Dems for 2020.
