The Hill reports:
The GOP nominee for attorney general in Arizona and the Republican National Committee (RNC) filed a lawsuit Tuesday alleging that mismanagement by elections officials may have influenced the results of the race.
The Arizona attorney general’s race was set to go to a recount after Democrat Kris Mayes led Republican Abraham Hamadeh by 510 votes.
Hamadeh and the RNC filed the lawsuit against Mayes, Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs (D), and the recorders and boards of supervisors of each county in the state.

The first post-election lawsuit challenging the results in AZ has been filed.
Among other things, Republican AG candidate Abe Hamadeh – who is losing by 520 votes – asks the court to declare him the winner.
