RNC, Republican AG Candidate Sue Arizona Election Officials

Republican Arizona attorney general candidate Abe Hamadeh and the Republican National Committee (RNC) sued his Democratic opponent Kris Mayes, Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs in her official capacity and county authorities Tuesday, alleging problems at some voting centers affected the outcome of the race.

Some election personnel allegedly handled problems related to ballot tabulation at voting centers improperly, while some early ballots were counted despite lacking a correct signature on their envelopes, according to the lawsuit filed in the Arizona Superior Court in Maricopa County.
