Which state grows the most pumpkins?

Spooky month is almost over unfortunately. With all the pandemic fatalities, the upcoming election, and confusion coming from White House I thought some pumpkin fun would be cool. This bit of trivia comes via Microsoft Bing:

This patch is in the Canadian province of British Columbia, a region known for growing some of the largest pumpkins in the world. In the US, California grows the most pumpkins sold to consumers, but Illinois is the champion in overall pumpkin production—in 2018 it supplied 500 million pounds of pumpkins to producers of canned pumpkin purée, which is used in pie filling and other treats.

Voter beware: California Republicans perform Voter Fraud

Republicans have complained about voter fraud consistently, yet, they themselves are the ones responsible for it, via election fraud, voter fraud, and voter suppression (I don’t know all the differences between those, but they certainly share the same traits: Undemocratic and Republican). Everything they claim to be against, they are (not against, but for), just like when Trump claimed to be “fighting corruption”, when his entire administration and party is corrupt. Republicans by all means are not new to voter suppression; their many accomplishments can be viewed here. Their Californian stunt is just a new series of attempts to mislead Democratic voters, who are more likely to vote by mail than in person. It is vital that everyone is aware of these efforts to remove our vote (the only real power most citizens have).
