HeadlineMay 19, 2022

Kansas’s new map lowers the reelection chances of Democratic Representative Sharice Davids, who made history in 2018 by becoming one of the first two Native American women elected to Congress.

In Wisconsin, two Democrats who served as Electoral College delegates have filed a first-of-its-kind lawsuit against a slate of fake electors put forward by allies of Donald Trump in a bid to overturn Joe Biden’s 2020 victory.
