Trump campaign lawsuit alleges former Nevada residents voted illegally

President Trump’s campaign announced Thursday that it will file a federal lawsuit alleging that as many as 10,000 people cast a ballot for Democratic challenger Joe Biden but no longer live in Nevada where the former vice president has maintained a narrow lead.

The suit wants the state to take measures to ensure that every “legal” vote is tallied, the Reno Gazette Journal reported.

“We warned for the last few weeks we could end up in a situation where Nevada decides the presidency,” said Adam Laxalt, former Nevada attorney general and co-chair in Trump’s campaign in the state. “We’re asking for emergency relief. We’re asking for the judge to stop the counting of improper votes.”

Laxalt announced the lawsuit during a news conference in Las Vegas.

“We are confident that when all legal votes are tallied — and only legal votes are tallied — President Trump will win the state of Nevada,” former director of national intelligence Ric Grenell told Fox News.

The Nevada lawsuit is among a raft of legal actions taken over the past two days in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan and Wisconsin over counting the results.

Biden, who currently has 264 Electoral College votes, could win the presidency if he wins Nevada’s six electoral votes.

Trump currently has 214 electoral votes.
