Republicans claim that there are more than enough questionable or fraudulent votes in Nevada to overcome the 33,596-vote margin by which Joe Biden appeared to defeat Trump in the state after mail-in votes were counted after Election Day.

American Conservative Union Chairman Matt Schlapp, who has helped lead the Trump campaign’s efforts in Nevada, told the Washington Examiner: “In my years of experience in politics, I have never seen the amount of illegal voting like we have documented in Clark County, Nevada. It is a level of corruption I didn’t think could happen in a modern, free country.”

The Las Vegas Review-Journal covered the case:

Judge James Russell heard arguments in the case Thursday but did not make a determination, saying he needed the evening to review the evidence cited in both campaign attorneys’ arguments to decide. He pledged to issue a ruling on Friday.

Out-of-state attorneys Jessie Binnall and Kevin Hamilton, representing the Trump and Biden electors, respectively, were each given an hour to make their arguments Thursday.

Trump’s case included testimony from several anonymous poll workers who claimed fraud or inconsistencies.

[Hamilton] claimed no court in the history of the United States has ever granted what the contestants are asking for — the reversal of a presidential election. He said Trump’s contest was part of a pattern of “baseless lawsuits by plaintiffs who simply can not accept the fact that their favored candidate lost the election to Joe Biden.”

Constitutional law professor Jonathan Turley live-tweeted the arguments:

The judge is expected to rule Friday, and appeals to the Nevada Supreme Court are expected to follow.
