Donald Trump and his associates are systematically reshaping the Republican Party, working to install hand-picked loyalists across federal and state governments and destroy those he feels have been disloyal, sources close to the former president tell Axios.
Why it matters: If most or all of Trump’s candidates win, he will go into the 2024 election cycle with far more people willing to do his bidding who run the elections in key states.

One common thread with many of the candidates he’s backed so far: They all support his efforts to overturn Joe Biden’s victory.

You could eliminate every voter ID law in the country. You could provide free transportation to the polls for every voter, and a mailbox on every corner for those who want to vote by mail. If the people in power have the ability to simply reject the people’s vote, none of it means *anything*. This is why I keep saying the Democrats and their big important voting law are totally missing the point.
