Arizona’s Republican Party chairwoman appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court as part of a long-shot effort to nullify Joe Biden’s victory there in the presidential election, according to a filing posted online by a Democratic lawyer.
The filing comes as the high court has nixed a similarly improbable bid by Texas to invalidate voters’ selection of Biden in four pivotal states, and reverse President Donald Trump’s election defeat.
The high court on Friday also got an emergency filing from former Trump campaign lawyer Sidney Powell seeking to decertify Biden’s victory in Georgia, according to Democratic lawyer Marc Elias, who has been active in the post-election litigation. Neither case has been formally docketed at the Supreme Court.
The appeal by Arizona GOP Chairwoman Kelli Ward says the state needs more time to conduct a new, larger examination of duplicates that were made of thousands of damaged ballots in the state’s largest county, Maricopa, which voted heavily for Biden.
