American Bridge's Opposition Research Provides Key Edge in Close Election Victory

American Bridge Statement on Adrian Fontes’ Win

Nov 14, 2022

On the news that Adrian Fontes has won election as Secretary of State of Arizona, American Bridge spokesperson Aidan Johnson released the following statement:

“Mark Finchem is a sociopathic Oathkeeper who would have sent Arizona back into the Dark Ages. He was quite possibly the most unqualified candidate to ever run for public office and Arizona can breathe a sigh of relief that he will never have control over the state’s electoral system. Voters rejected Finchem and other MAGA Republicans who would have rigged the 2024 election for Donald Trump.”

Earlier this year, American Bridge launched Bridge to Democracy, a program to hold accountable election deniers running for critical election administration positions across the country. Bridge to Democracy was crucial in bringing to light research that shaped and ultimately won this race — a key position in certifying presidential election results in 2024.

American Bridge’s research was decisive in this race, notching hits that appeared in outlets across the state:

Early in the cycle, American Bridge recognized Arizona’s importance in the battlefield, investing in television ads across the state telling the story of President Biden and the Democrats’ economic agenda. American Bridge used storytellers like Jodi, a Tucson resident and independent voter, to connect with voters about Democrats’ work to secure our economic security.
