BREAKING: Trump Campaign Sues To Stop Maricopa County Vote Canvass, Blames Poll Workers Who Permitted Overvotes (READ Complaint)

Donald Trump's campaign - along with the national and Arizona Republican parties - filed a lawsuit Saturday afternoon to stop Maricopa County from moving forward with canvassing the results. The action claims that poll workers improperly dealt with potential overvotes by voters on Election Day.

The President's campaign would like the court to force the county to review any such ballots and that they believe it will "yield up to thousands of additional votes for President Trump", as well as for other Republican candidates.

At the present moment, Joe Biden leads Donald Trump for President in Arizona by more than 18,000 votes.

The groups are represented by four well-known Arizona election law attorneys - former State Elections Director Eric Spencer, Brett Johnson, Kory Langhofer and Thomas Basile. They have collected declarations from several voters and poll observers who claim that poll workers allowed ballots to be accepted without informing the voter that an overvote might ruin their entire ballot.

Here is the Complaint filed this afternoon:
