Yeah, how dare those Greenies exercise their right to run for office! Those votes belong to the Dems whether voters want those candidates in office or not.

- exercise their right to run for office!

No one said they didn't have the right, the question is how is this kind of self-inflected wound to themselves and all Americans progress when they are in effect helping Republicans win.

The only wound on this country is those who vote for criminals qnd liars and then expect them to be honest.

Corky - - they are in effect helping Republicans win
Much the same was argued about Ralph Nader after the 2000 election of W.
Then the argument swings around on the fact that the 2-party system is killing elections.

Most of the time, the Green/Bernie/etc get their wish and there is no Dem in office.

So all is well for those voters.

Sinema's lead just expanded to almost 18,000 after today's vote release. There are still 375K yet to be tabulated.

Her lead is now over 20,000 votes. And there are still some 250,000+ votes yet to be counted.

And Trump's latest response; declare the election invalid and hold a new election ASAP.

Please excuse my short response. I had surgery on my Left elbow this afternoon and I'm having to type this using one-hand and one-finger as I'm in a sling and a full-arm splint that prevents me from bending my arm. I'm even going to have to sleep sitting-up in a chair for a couple of days (I've done it before, for six weeks when I had surgery to replace a tendon in my Right shoulder 11 years ago).

Missed opportunity for the GOP.
What Trump should say is, we're going to have to suspend elections until we get this whole thing sorted out.
It might take him a few tries, like his Muslim Travel Ban, but especially with a stacked Supreme Court, he'll eventually get his way.
