I still haven’t received my birthday card from my grandmother sent 5 years ago.
That being said, Nevada’s Governor Stephen F. Sisolak (a democrat of course) signed a bill that will make Nevada’s residents put the fate of the 2020 election in the hands of a mail-in voting system. Donald Trump said it best “They are using Covid to steal the state.”
Trump, in conjunction with national and state Republicans, filed a lawsuit challenging Nevada’s new law that will send mail ballots to all registered voters for the November election. https://t.co/Y8QGJzV3ty

See what President Trump had to say :
In an illegal late night coup, Nevada’s clubhouse Governor made it impossible for Republicans to win the state. Post Office could never handle the Traffic of Mail-In Votes without preparation. Using Covid to steal the state. See you in Court! https://t.co/cNSPINgCY7

Nevada has ZERO infrastructure for Mail-In Voting. It will be a corrupt disaster if not ended by the Courts. It will take months, or years, to figure out. Florida has built a great infrastructure, over years, with two great Republican Governors. Florida, send in your Ballots!

Our friends at Fox News had more details on the newly-filed lawsuit:
The Trump campaign and the Republican National state and national committees late Tuesday filed a lawsuit against Nevada over expanded mail-in voting for the November election.
The lawsuit claims Assembly Bill 4, which would allow ballots to be mailed to all registered voters in the state, will undermine the election’s “integrity,” FOX 5 in Las Vegas reported.
“Republicans have always supported efforts to make it easier for voters to cast their ballot,” the lawsuit, filed in a district court against Nevada Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske, said. “At the same time, however, the electoral process cannot function properly if it lacks integrity and results in chaos. Put simply, the American people must be able to trust that the result is the product of a free and fair election.”
Gov. Steve Sisolak, a Democrat, signed the bill on Monday after it passed the state legislature along party lines, the Nevada Independent reported.
Sisolak tweeted the bill “ensures protections for Nevadans to vote safely at the November election during the pandemic.”
President Trump is not totally against mail-in voting, he’s touted praise for the State of Florida on how they handled mail-in voting.
What he really opposes is a liberal Governor just waking up and issuing a bill that screams public safety but the motive is to sway an election.
Listen to President Trump’s opinion on mail-in voting.
