ERN in the Post-Election News — Summary:
- David Brooks cites our work on election deniers running for secretary of state on PBS NewsHour.
- ERN opinion piece on the message from voters published in Talking Points Memo.
- Our call for secretaries of state running for office to recuse gets results in Washington.
- The Bangor Daily News editorializes in support of our position on recusal
