Nevada Attorney General Aaron Ford stops Trump’s attempt to cancel Nevada’s voters preference for President.
Caron City, NV – Nevada Attorney General Aaron D. Ford released a statement regarding a Trump federal lawsuit to cancel Nevada’s recent election results. The emergency injunction sought to prevent Secretary of State Cegavske from certifying the results of the November 3rd general election thereby preventing Nevada electors from casting their votes for President on December 12th. It would prevent any Nevada candidate from taking office, based on the alleged unconstitutionality of Nevada Assembly Bill 4. Instead, the Trump administration sought a new election, which would strike down Nevada voter ballots. Clark County District Court Judge Gloria Sturman held an expedited hearing and denied Trump’s request, ruling that the plaintiffs, including Donald Trump, failed to show a likelihood of success on the merits of the case.
“An attempt to throw out the entire election and the legal votes of hundreds of thousands of Nevadans without legal justification undermines our election process and our democracy,” said Attorney General Aaron D. Ford. Nevada Assembly Bill 4 was enacted because of the coronavirus pandemic and proved to be successful in allowing thousands of citizens to vote by mail thereby limiting their potential exposure to the virus. All evidence shows that Nevada’s election was fair, safe, and secure – and time and again, the Court has agreed. Nevadans voted and chose their president-elect, Joe Biden. It’s time to move on.”
