Election deniers: The winners and losers

Nearly 300 election deniers — people who do not accept the fact that former President Donald Trump lost the 2020 election or who falsely believed there was foul play or fraud in the election system — were on ballots across the country. Some of them lost, many won and in several key states, the results are not yet in.
