In a victory for Arizona’s GOP, the state’s Supreme Court has decided to take on an expedited appeals case over voter fraud. On Monday, the state Supreme Court said it will review the appeal, but will not be hearing oral arguments.
The suit was filed by Arizona GOP chair Kelli Ward who called to overturn the state’s election results and cited evidence of duplicated ballots. She had filed the initial suit last week, but it was dismissed by a Maricopa County superior court judge who, in part, cited a filing deadline technicality.

While the Supreme Court decision is a decisive victory for the Trump campaign, Ward was quick to point out that the campaign was employing a number of strategies in order to bring the truth to Arizona.
The high court ordered both sides to file written briefs for the appeal by next week.
