- Abe Hamadeh, the Republican Nominee for Attorney, has said he wants to see every vote cast in the Arizona 2022 General Election and filed a lawsuit against the State of Arizona to ensure that happens.
- However, as reported by Tucson.com, there may be issues with transferring power at the Attorney General’s Office (AGO). Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Randall Warner asked the parties involved in the case to share their perspectives on the timing of this lawsuit. Dan Barr, an attorney representing the Democrat nominee in this race, Kris Mayes, said Hamadeh’s lawsuit came too soon. Hamadeh and the Republican National Committee (RNC) filed their lawsuit on November 22nd, but Barr argued that claims made in the complaint could not be brought before the court prior to the formal canvass or certification of votes, which is currently set for December 5th. Kory Langhofer, the attorney representing Hamadeh, asserted that the case was not brought up too early because it involves the possibility of some voters being disenfranchised in the election, which are concerns that should be addressed before this race goes to an automatic recount.
