Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson (D) on Friday warned about what the 2022 midterm elections mean for the future of democracy in America.

On MSNBC’s “Deadline: White House,” host Nicolle Wallace noted how Benson was “just the kind of person” that former President Donald Trump wanted to replace to potentially overturn the 2024 election if the vote doesn’t go his, or another Republican’s, way.

Benson, who was elected as Michigan’s top election official in 2018, faced intimidation from Trump supporters following the 2020 election amid ultimately unsuccessful GOP efforts to overturn President Joe Biden’s victory.

“Our ability to protect and defend democracy in 2020 depended entirely on people of integrity on both sides of the aisle, protecting the will of the people, saying no, when the president called, and said, ‘find me votes,’ and certifying elections despite threats and violence and challenges to those certification processes,” she said.
