"What about the voices of all the people who get outvoted? Where's the fairness if they lose?"

The Pennsylvania GOP put out a statement on Monday night vehemently denouncing the candidate's lawsuit, saying "we absolutely object to the counting of undated mail-in ballots."

This would be great if we could count on the Supreme Court to be consistent instead of ruling for the benefit of Republicans.

Well, I'm actually kinda hoping Dr. Oz wins the primary because Fetterman is absolutely going to hammer him on Oz's carpetbaggery.

Fetterman has PA bonafides. Oz does not.

And it's pretty likely that rank and file Republicans are going to see his real first name and go "Mehmet? Like one o' them furriner types? I AINT VOTIN' FOR NO TERRIST!"

I already have absolute faith that Fetterman will run his campaign with perfection and has given no reasons for voters to choose a different candidate

Can you loan some of your faith in Americans choosing the correct and not obviously terrible candidate? I ran out of that a few years back.

We've been voting by mail in Oregon for decades now. I don't ever remember having to date my ballot. I sign it and drop it in one of the many ballot drop boxes around town. This date requirement just sounds like another attempt to keep people from voting.

Of course we're currently having a sh*tshow in one of the districts because of a bunch of misprinted ballots.

But of course as well, the person who bungled that is a vocal Republican who staunchly refused any help in fixing the problem and has offered practically no information on what went wrong or why.

In fact, Trump called on his endorsee to just go ahead and declare victory because doing so would "makes it much harder for them to cheat with the ballots that they 'just happened to find.'"

He tried that on Election Night and it didn't keep Brandon from kicking Trump's ass.

"We have worked hard towards restoring confidence in our elections, and we call upon everyone to respect, uphold and follow the clear law on this issue"

Yeah, the "clear law" on that has been decided.

Sounds like this is a dry run for the shenanigans they might pull in the general election - use the primary to get the kinks out first.

I remember a couple years ago the fascists in either Alabama or Mississippi (is there a difference?) stated that automatic voter registration of all people who just turned 18 would go against everything MLK fought for.  They said it with a straight face.
