The GOP nominee for attorney general in Arizona and the Republican National Committee (RNC) filed a lawsuit Tuesday alleging that mismanagement by elections officials may have influenced the results of the race.
The Arizona attorney general’s race was set to go to a recount after Democrat Kris Mayes led Republican Abraham Hamadeh by 510 votes. Hamadeh and the RNC filed the lawsuit against Mayes, Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs (D), and the recorders and boards of supervisors of each county in the state.
The plaintiffs specifically note before making their argument that they are not alleging any “fraud, manipulation or other intentional wrongdoing” that would affect the results of the race.
However, the lawsuit points out the massive number of problems with polling places and tabulation machines on Election Day, and say the election was “afflicted with certain errors and inaccuracies.”
The lawsuit also alleges that provisional ballots were improperly disqualified.
Hamadeh announced the lawsuit on Twitter Tuesday evening, and wrote, “Arizonans demand answers and deserve transparency about the gross incompetence and mismanagement of the General Election by certain election officials. I will not stop fighting until ALL voters receive justice. See you in court.”
