Trump campaign intends to file lawsuit in Nevada

President Donald Trump is escalating his efforts to sow doubt about the outcome of the presidential race. Trump's campaign engaged in a flurry of legal activity to try to improve the Republican president's chances and cast doubt on the election results, requesting a recount in Wisconsin and filing lawsuits in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Georgia. A Trump campaign statement delivered to reporters in Las Vegas, said a lawsuit was pending in Nevada to stop voting. "We are filing in federal district court here in Las Vegas, we're asking for emergency relief, TRO (temporary restraining order) and injunctive relief," former Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt said. "We're asking the judge to, due to all of these irregularities, to stop the counting of improper votes."
