Gluesenkamp Perez defeated Joe Kent to win the general election in Washington’s 3rd Congressional District
Democrat Marie Gluesenkamp Perez defeated far-right Republican Joe Kent in the general election for Washington’s 3rd Congressional District. With her victory, Democrats will gain a critical pickup in congress, and eight of Washington’s congressional districts will be held by Democrats.
Kent and Perez were both pro-Trump. Kent ran on an “America First” agenda, and called for a nearly total shutdown on immigration. Kent was frequently interviewed on conservative news networks, including Tucker Carlson’s Fox show. He has also railed against vaccine mandates and called for the Mar-a-Lago investigation to be defunded. He is also a regular on Steve Bannon’s podcast.
Kent is a former Green Beret who was endorsed by former President Donald Trump. He has appeared on conservative media networks almost daily. He also has a controversial background that includes ties to far-right figures.
Kent was considered the heavy favorite in the race, but Gluesenkamp Perez pulled off the win with about 50% of the vote. Kent is a former Green Beret who became a darling of conservative media. He has appeared on Tucker Carlson’s Fox show almost daily. He is also a regular on Steve Bannon’s podcast.
Kent has been a fixture on conservative news networks and has railed against vaccine mandates, Mar-a-Lago, and President Biden. He is also a supporter of the national abortion ban. Kent has also called for the defunding of the FBI after the search of Mar-a-Lago.
Kent is a supporter of Trump’s “America First” agenda and a frequent guest on Tucker Carlson’s Fox show. He has also been criticized for his links to far-right figures.
Kent has been criticized for his anti-abortion stance. He has also called for a near-total shutdown on immigration. He has also been called an “extremist” by Rep. Barbara Lee.
Kent’s campaign is working on ballot curing to fix clerical problems. It is estimated that there are roughly 12,000 ballots still outstanding in the district. The Associated Press said that the margin of victory was outside the range that would trigger an automatic recount. However, it is possible that Kent could catch up with the votes that remain.
Colorado voters approved Proposition 122
Psychedelics were legalized in Colorado when voters approved Proposition 122 on November 8, 2014. The vote was the second psychedelic-legalization measure in the United States, following Oregon’s passage of a similar measure in 2020. Proposition 122 allows people 21 and older to grow psilocin plants and use psilocybin, a hallucinogen derived from psychedelic mushrooms. It also creates rules and regulations for psychedelic-assisted therapy.
A coalition of advocates led by Natural Medicine Colorado won Proposition 122 on the ballot. Proponents of the measure say that it will allow people to access psychedelics in licensed facilities. They also say that it will provide more treatment options for people with mental health problems.
The measure also creates a Natural Medicine Advisory Board. The board is not elected, but will be responsible for making recommendations about the substances that can be used. The board will be comprised of physicians, psychologists, therapists, and other experts. In 2024, the Department of Regulatory Agencies will begin accepting applications for healing center licenses. The Department of Regulatory Agencies will also be responsible for creating a legal framework for psychedelic-assisted treatment.
The measure is expected to raise $145 million in the budget year 2022-23 and $290 million in the budget year 2023-24. The money raised would be used for affordable housing projects, homelessness programs, and nonprofits.
In addition, the measure would allow grocery stores that already sell beer to sell wine. It would also decriminalize a wider range of substances than Oregon’s law. It would also set a timetable for the legal access to psilocybin. It does not allow cities to opt out of the measure.
Proponents say that the measure will allow adults to access psychedelics in a safe and supervised setting. It will also allow for licensed “healing centers” to administer psychedelics for therapeutic purposes. In addition, the advisory board will help decide on rules for use of the substances.
The measure also includes an amendment to create the 23rd Judicial District. The new district will include Douglas, Elbert, and Lincoln counties. The current 17th Judicial District is the largest in the state.
Nevada voters approved Question 3
Despite a number of critics, including prominent Republicans, Nevada voters approved Question 3, a ballot initiative that would change the state’s primary election system. The initiative would also use ranked-choice voting in the general election.
Proponents of the initiative say that it will make Nevada’s political process fairer and more democratic. The initiative would allow all registered voters to participate in a single primary election, removing the need to register with a political party. It also would eliminate Nevada’s two-tier minimum wage system, which allowed employers to pay employees $1 per hour less if they offered health benefits.
In order to get Question 3 on the ballot, a petition drive was conducted. Nonpartisan groups such as Represent US and the Final Five Fund have contributed to the cause. The campaign also has received significant funds from out-of-state donors. Hedge fund manager Kenneth Griffin contributed $3 million, while Katheryn Murdoch donated $2.5 million.
While Question 3 was not the most expensive ballot measure to be passed, it was one of the most expensive in the country. Campaign contributions totaled more than $21,094,351; most of the money came from out-of-state donors.
The top five vote-getters in the primary will advance to the general election. The winner will be determined by ranked-choice voting. In order to be eligible for the general election, a candidate must have more than 50% of the first-choice votes. This may not be a guarantee of victory in November.
Although the question on the ballot has been approved, Nevada’s primary elections will not be over until at least 2024. If the measure is approved in two general elections, Nevada’s constitutional amendment will go into effect. This measure will also change the culture of Congress. It will affect both face-to-face campaigns and the voting process.

Counting mail-in ballots
Counting mail-in ballots in Nevada is expected to take several days. This is especially true in Clark County, the state’s most populous county, which includes Las Vegas. Clark County also accounts for more than one-third of the state’s total population. It is expected that several thousand mail-in ballots will be counted later this week.
The Nevada race for governor is still uncalled, and the state’s U.S. Senate race is also still uncalled. However, the Democratic incumbent, Catherine Cortez Masto, is facing a tough challenge from Republican candidate Adam Laxalt. Laxalt leads Cortez Masto by about two percentage points. The Senate race could also become a race for control of the upper chamber of the Nevada legislature.
Clark County is expected to count over 22,000 mail-in ballots. These ballots will have to be cured if they have clerical problems such as an incorrect signature or a missing signature. The registrar said he expects to report the results of these ballots later today.
Washoe County, home to Reno, is the second most populous county in the state. In Washoe County, nearly 17,000 mail-in ballots have been counted so far. A total of 79,200 ballots were received on Election Day. However, results for another 61,000 ballots have not been reported. Counting these ballots could take even longer.
The Nevada election has become the focal point of conspiracy theories, with many calling the delay a sign of voter fraud. However, election officials stress that the system is accurate and accessible. They are also stressing the importance of a convenient system that allows voters to cast their ballots.
The state’s mail-in ballots must be postmarked by Election Day to be counted. However, Nevada’s mail-in ballots arrive up to four days after Election Day. This allows election officials time to process the ballots. However, many voting rights groups have argued that if mail ballots arrive earlier, they could cause delays.
During the early voting period, more than 25,700 mail-in ballots were delivered to the Nevada election department. Clark County election officials plan to hold press briefings daily. The exact time has not been set, but they plan to release results around 7 p.m.
