A Republican group plans to erect dozens of billboards saying "Trump Lost: No More 'Audits'" in eight states as part of a quarter-million-dollar campaign targeting supporters of the former president who are still pushing for ballot recounts.
"Today, Republicans for Voting Rights (RVR) launched a billboard campaign across the country in response to reckless Republican calls for sham audits of the 2020 election," the group wrote on Twitter on Wednesday. "Here's one we've put up in New York City's Times Square:"

"These billboards will run in Georgia, Florida, Texas, Pennsylvania, Arizona, and Michigan to denounce sham election audits that delegitimize our democratic process," the group added.
According to the group's website, Florida will get the most "Trump Lost" billboards with 5, followed by Texas with four and Pennsylvania with three.
Meanwhile, another group of anti-Trump Republicans planned to endorse a slate of Democratic lawmakers facing tough races in 2022 midterm elections on Thursday.
"The Renew America Movement (RAM), formed by centrist Republicans after a mob of Trump supporters stormed Congress on Jan. 6 to try to stop lawmakers from certifying Democratic President Joe Biden's election victory, concedes that Trump and his conspiracy theories now have an iron grip on the party," according to Reuters. "RAM, whose leadership includes former Republican Governors Christine Todd Whitman of New Jersey and Bill Weld of Massachusetts, said supporting moderate candidates is vital to safeguarding American democracy."
RAM reportedly planned to endorse 11 Democrats, nine moderate Republicans, and one Independent running for the U.S. House and Senate. They include Democratic Reps. Abigail Spanberger of Virginia and Elissa Slotkin of Michigan, as well as Democratic Sen. Mark Kelly of Arizona.
The group also plans to back Republican Reps. Liz Cheney of Wyoming and Adam Kinzinger of Illinois, who are among the few GOP lawmakers who've denounced Trump's false claims of widespread voter fraud.
