Republicans in Wisconsin and at the national level want to join the lawsuit over absentee ballots in the state.
The state and national Republican parties this week asked to join the case which is being brought by a pair of liberal groups. The lawsuit looks to overturn Wisconsin’s rules for absentee ballots, ballot drop boxes, and same day ballot during. The lawsuit is filed against the Wisconsin Elections Commission, but the Republicans say they should be the ones handling the defense because it will be Republicans who suffer if the liberal groups win. The lawsuit was filed last month, there’s no word when a judge may decide on the Republicans’ request.
