Defend democracy in the South.


Florida state Sen. Dennis Baxley and Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick are among the elected officials who've given voice to a racist and antisemitic conspiracy theory that claims elites are trying to replace the white population with people of color. Among the top corporate donors to Baxley's campaign are HCA Healthcare, Walt Disney, and the Florida Association of Realtors, while Patrick's top contributors include the political influence arm of DHR Health and Ryan LLC, a tax services and consulting firm.
