Trump Campaign Sues NJ To Block Voting By Mail

The Hill reports:

The Trump campaign on Tuesday filed a lawsuit against New Jersey after Gov. Phil Murphy (D) after he announced that every voter in the state would receive a mail-in ballot, in addition to being allowed to vote in-person, as a safety precaution during the coronavirus pandemic.

The lawsuit, obtained by Reuters, was filed in the U.S. District Court for New Jersey to invalidate “Executive Order 177.”

The campaign claims that Murphy appropriated power that belongs to the New Jersey state legislature when he overhauled the state’s election law, alleging he violated both the Elections Clause and the Electors Clause of the U.S. Constitution. It also accuses Murphy of violating the 14th Amendment.
