Sen. Thom Tillis (R-N.C.) has won a close and brutal re-election fight, multiple outlets are reporting on Tuesday afternoon. His Democratic opponent, Cal Cunningham, has conceded the race to him.

According to Politico, Tillis received 48.7% of the vote compared to Cunningham’s 47% with roughly 100,000 votes separating the two.

Tillis’s re-election to the U.S. Senate boosts Republicans’ chances that they will maintain a majority of seats in the upper chamber in the new session of Congress starting in January.

That’s all to be decided by Georgia and Alaska.

As of right now, both of Georgia’s Senate races will see side-by-side runoff elections, where the margins between both incumbent Republicans and their Democratic challengers is very slim.

The outcome of both runoff elections will have a heavy bearing on what the political dynamic on Capitol Hill will look like for the next two years. There is also incumbent GOP Sen. Dan Sullivan’s race in Alaska that has yet to be called but is widely expected to go to Sullivan.

Judge orders Biden’s DHS to release files on agents accused of censoring election ‘misinformation’

Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey and Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry made headway in countering federal agents involved in suppressing what liberal tech labeled “misinformation” on social media.

The Attorneys General moved to release testimony from five Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) employees after learning of their participation in the Biden administration’s counter-“disinformation” efforts. On Wednesday, a Louisiana judge ordered the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to release the files.

Court documents dated Jan. 19 show  the agents participated. The judge’s motion Wednesday could shed light on a “switchboarding” tactic employed during the 2020 election, according to the order.

The lawsuit alleges that the defendants, which include the named individuals as well as President Joe Biden and top officials from a variety of federal agencies, “colluded and/or coerced social media companies to suppress disfavored speakers, viewpoints, and content on social media platforms by labeling the content “dis-information,” “mis-information,” and “mal-formation.”

The Daily Caller reports that the five CISA employees allegedly served as a “switchboard” to route requests from federal agencies to censor disinformation to various social media companies, according to the documents.

Switchboard work employed “an audit official to identify something on social media they deemed to be disinformation aimed at their jurisdiction,” top CISA election security agent Brian Skully testified in a deposition released Thursday.

“They couldforward that to CISA and CISA would share that with the appropriate social mediacompanies.”
