  • Then try to impeach the judges who strike down their gerrymandering.
  • Promote voter suppression.
  • Put partisan labeling on nonpartisan elections, especially for judgeships.
  • Limit labor unions ability to organize.
  • Turn nonpartisan election boards into partisan entities controlled by Republicans.
