Fallout From Arizona’s State Primary. The Democratic Party, along with Bernie Sanders’s and Hillary Clinton’s campaigns, will file a lawsuit against the state of Arizona, calling for a review of the polling location plan for the November election after thousands of residents waited for hours to vote in the state’s March 22 primary. The lawsuit, which focuses on Maricopa County, says that a shortage of voting places “resulted in severe, inexcusable burdens on voters.” (Sari Horwitz, The Washington Post)
