    Surge Summary: An attempt by Leftists in Arizona to reverse election integrity efforts has failed. But why would they want to hinder more trustworthy elections anyway?

    by Gary Bauer

    Conservatives have been working hard in recent years to pass election integrity legislation.  And we’ve succeeded in many states.  Not surprisingly, the left is working hard to undo that progress.

    After Arizona passed election integrity legislation in 2021 and 2022, left-wing groups funded by George Soros started collecting signatures for a ballot initiative that would repeal these election integrity laws . . . just in time for the 2024 presidential election.I am pleased to report that advocates for election integrity, including Ken Blackwell, Ken Cuccinelli and others, quickly moved to stop this effort to undermine Arizona’s elections by challenging the ballot initiative signatures submitted by the Soros-funded groups.

    The Arizona Supreme Court agreed with the challenge and ordered a Maricopa County court to verify the collected signatures.  The trial judge found that the left-wing groups just barely met the required threshold to certify the ballot initiative.

    Thankfully, the justices of the state supreme court didn’t just take the trial judge’s word for it.  They demanded to see the judge’s calculations to verify his work.  But he refused to provide it.  So, the justices were forced to disqualify the ballot initiative for lack of sufficient signatures.

    This critical victory is an important reminder that the left is desperate to cheat in elections and that it never gives up.  Other states that have passed election integrity measures must be on guard for similar left-wing efforts to undermine them.
