Response to Proud Liberal Dem (Original post)

6. From everything I've read

The Lincoln Project is working to unseat Trump and his enablers. That includes Senate Republicans running for reelection on November 3rd. In fact, I just read an interview with John Weaver, one of the group's co-founders, who said the Lincoln Project is planning not only to ensure a Biden win but that Republican obstructionism is stopped dead so that extensive repair and reforms to government and voting rights are successful.

'These are not people who have or ever will turn into Democrats. They are committed conservatives who have said in unison: The Republican Party either reforms itself or it dies. Either way, they're supporting Biden and the Democrats this election season because they fully recognize the danger of Trump and Trumpism to the Republic. Due to successful fund raising, they're planning to be on the ground in a number of Senate races, pushing to elect Dems. They're also planning an extensive info campaign on mail-in voting. Despite all Trump's caterwauling on mail-in/absentee voting, Republicans have used mail-in votes to up their electoral participation. In the 2018 election, that meant a 70% participation rate in Florida where Gillium was the favorite but DeSantis ultimately won.

Whatever help they can give, I'll take gladly.
