“Throughout the 2022 primary season, groups affiliated with the Democratic Party funded ads to boost immoderate Republican candidates. The goal was to boost the least moderate candidates in the hopes that they would be easier to beat in a general election. Now that Americans have voted, it looks like the gamble worked. Democrats exercised their free speech, but did they set a good precedent? … After years of claiming that money in politics is bad and Trumpists will destroy America, Democrats spent millions to boost the people they are most afraid of.” (11/09/22)
