Even if Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson were to pull off a miracle comeback in the final round of tallies, the Senate seat hardly justifies the attention and expense the two parties have lavished on the fight. And whatever the outcome, Republicans will retain a narrow … [Read more...] about The Florida recount is really about the 2020 presidential election

Sarah Rahal The Detroit News Published 9:00 PM EST Nov 13, 2018 Ann Arbor — Michigan's Secretary of State-elect Jocelyn Benson is calling on residents to debate on the way America selects presidents. Benson, who will oversee the next presidential election for the state as the newly elected Michigan secretary of state, said as the 2020 election approaches, conversations on election reforms should increase, as will questions surrounding whether the Electoral College remains effective.

El PASO — Chuck McCarthy was hoping for a Beto O’Rourke victory when he lined up six hours before the Southwest University Stadium doors opened for an election night rally. While he said he wasn’t happy about Ted Cruz’s victory in the U.S. Senate race, he believes this isn’t the last time Texas will see O’Rourke on a ballot. “He’s got it in his blood now.
