In The News: Groups Plan Campaign Against President Amid Fears He Won’t Leave Office If He Isn’t Re-Elected

By Ramsey Touchberry // Newsweek // 6.12.2020

Liberal activist groups are not only preparing for election day on November 3—they are organizing for what may come the day after.

Concerns among progressives—and even some Democrats in office—that President Donald Trump may lose the November election yet dismiss the results or refuse to relinquish his power are so prevalent that organizations are forming a coalition to educate voters and “mobilize” millions of Americans to demand a peaceful transfer of power.

“We’re sounding the alarm that the threat Trump poses to our democracy is very real,” Stand Up America President Sean Eldridge told Newsweek.
