The swing states that came into play in the 2020 election were ironically the same states where large grants were given prior to the election.
The US Government created the CARES Act wherein part they provided funds to states to help them manage the 2020 Election with the China Coronovirus still a factor in the states.
Overall the government gave away over $470 million in CARES grant funding by July 2020. Oddly enough the swing states had some of the largest CARES grants.
Six swing states received some of the largest awards in the CARES Act (Pennsylvania – $17 million, Georgia – $13 million, Michigan – $14 million, Wisconsin – $9 million, Arizona $9 million, and Nevada – $5 million). In total these swing states reviewed $67 million in CARES grants.
