Arizona’s Republican Party says it’s going to appeal its election integrity case to the U.S. Supreme Court. This comes days after Arizona’s Supreme Court rejected their case.
Dr. Kelli Ward the Chairwoman of the Arizona GOP noted that it’s only the third election-related case to go to the Supreme Court. It joins Texas and Rep. Mike Kelly (R-Pa.).
Ward announced on Nov. 11 the party would appeal its election integrity case to the nation’s highest court.
“Today, it’s the day that you’ve been waiting for. Our case is going to the Supreme Court of the United States,” she said. “If we are accepted we’ll be only the third case in this presidential 2020 to be accepted by the Supreme Court.”
Ward claims the case needs to go to the Supreme Court because her party has not had due process—meaning having time to make a case, do discovery, hold a hearing all while working under what she calls “unrealistic deadlines” by the judge.
“This is going to go to the Supreme Court and guess who’s fighting it, the Democrats, the left the media, the media loves to say show us the evidence, we found evidence, but then we didn’t have enough time to do more discovery because they’ve kept that evidence locked up. It’s smoke and mirrors and the people of Arizona see right through it. So do the people of America as a whole.”
The appeal says the state needs more time to examine thousands of duplicates of damaged ballots in Maricopa County.
It also asks the court to invalidate the December 8th safe harbor deadline and the Electoral College meeting on Monday, in which the president is formally selected.
