They just canceled it — an election update has stunned the nation. Millions of Americans are shocked as drastic decisions are being made under the ‘new normal’ presented by the COVID-19 crisis.
“In a historic move less than 24 hours before polls were set to open, Democratic Gov. Tony Evers shut down Tuesday’s election to avoid causing more illness and deaths in Wisconsin,” reported the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.
Evers moved the primary election to June 9, meaning yet another large state will be up for grabs shortly before the Democratic National Convention takes place during the week of August 17.
Former Vice President Joe Biden is still expected to seal the nomination by that time, even though he has been strangely absent — at least for the most part — ever since COVID-19 became a national concern.
As for Wisconsin, Evers’ move was “expected to immediately be challenged by Republican lawmakers who want to keep polls open.” They eventually “adjourned the Legislature on Monday” without considering his measure.
However, whether it’s political struggle or a public health crisis, both will pass in time. COVID-19 will be defeated; Democrats will have their nominee; the November election will be a bloodbath; and Trump will still win.
