The Messenger: Local Trump Indictment Headlines Could Be ‘An Ad for Joe Biden’ in 2024 Battleground States

Key Excerpts: 

  • Unlike his previous indictments, the latest criminal charges Trump now faces have direct links to the battleground states where he tried to overturn the 2020 election results – and hopes to win in 2024. His alleged efforts with co-conspirators to organize fraudulent slates of electors in seven states – Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, New Mexico, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin – featured prominently in his latest federal indictment, as well as news outlets in those states.
  • Pat Dennis, who leads the Democratic opposition research group American Bridge 21st Century, said his organization would make sure that voters are aware of the extent to which local Republicans were complicit in efforts to overturn the election. Most voters, however, already understand Trump’s involvement, he said. 
  • “As you saw by looking at the headlines, in a lot of ways this pitches itself,” he said. “This is an issue that matters to voters and Trump is the one driving it without our help.”
  • Candidates who denied the results of the 2020 election had little success in battleground states ranging from Arizona to Georgia to Pennsylvania in the 2022 midterms.
  • To this point, Biden has generally remained quiet about Trump’s growing legal woes. Instead, his team has tried to promote his accomplishments in office – most recently on the economy – in an effort to create a contrast with the former president and the rest of the GOP.
