19. real hero Aaron Van Langevelde, a Republican member of the Michigan Board of State Canvassers,

Few revere Aaron Van Langevelde, a Republican member of the Michigan Board of State Canvassers, whose courageous vote to certify Michigan's vote for Biden tilted the whole scene.

Had Langevelde voted to make a 2-2 tie, Michigan would not have gone into Biden's totals. Then Wisconsin and Pennsylvania would likely have folded for Trump. Langevelde prevented this momentum. Trump's team knew how vital this was, which is why they worked so hard on MI.

"With the other Republican on the board abstaining from Monday's vote to certify the presidential election in Michigan—a maneuver that Trump's legal team and state Republican officials were hoping would keep the outcome of the election an open question—Van Langevelde did the right thing. He acknowledged reality and voted to certify that Biden had won the state of Michigan by about 154,000 votes.

Van Langevelde is, deservingly, the hero of a must-read, deeply reported piece from Politico's Tim Alberta, who has emerged as one of the best chroniclers of the Republican Party's Trumpist takeover.
