OP-ED | Is it Over? Did We Save Democracy?

Democrats all over the country had a message for voters this fall: democracy itself is at risk if you vote for a Republican Party still enthralled by Donald Trump and his army of election deniers and January 6 insurrectionists. Voters, despite the predictions of talking heads and analysts, responded. Democrats only lost the House by a few seats instead of a landslide, kept the Senate, made impressive (and surprising) gains in state legislatures, and sent some of the worst election deniers in crucial swing states packing.
