Trump Drops Legal Challenge in Arizona

What does this foreshadow? A possible resignation?

Wall Street Journal Attorneys for the Trump campaign said Friday they’re no longer seeking a court’s intervention into the presidential race in Arizona.

The Trump campaign, along with the state and national Republican party, sued in Arizona last week, alleging some in-person votes cast in Maricopa County were improperly rejected.

At a daylong hearing Thursday, Kory Langhofer, an attorney for the Trump campaign, made clear the campaign wasn’t alleging any voter fraud but instead claimed some poll workers submitted ballots that had errors that voters weren’t given the opportunity to fix. The number of votes at issue was less than 200, and Mr. Langhofer said at the close of the hearing that they wouldn’t ask election officials to recount those ballots if they had no ability to affect the outcome of the race.

In a filing Friday morning, Mr. Langhofer told the Arizona state court that “Since the close of yesterday’s hearing, the tabulation of votes statewide has rendered unnecessary a judicial ruling as to the presidential electors.” Two down-ballot races could still potentially be affected, he wrote.

A Trump campaign spokesman said the campaign continues to explore its options in Arizona, and that “in-person voters, who were likely predominately Trump voters, were disenfranchised by having their votes kicked out by the machines in Maricopa County.”

The Arizona Secretary of State's office has disputed the allegations in the lawsuit and said there was no evidence of votes not being counted.

The judge is expected to hold another hearing in the case Friday afternoon.

Joe Biden led President Trump by about 11,000 votes on Friday, with 99% of the votes counted, according to the Associated Press.
