Republican Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich has offered to aid Georgia Attorney General Christopher Carr in Georgia’s continued legal fight against the Biden admin DOJ.
Last week, Attorney General Merrick Garland announced that the DOJ was suing Georgia over its election reforms, saying in a press conference “Today, the Department of Justice is suing the state of Georgia. Our complaint alleges that recent changes to Georgia’s election laws were enacted with the purpose of denying or abridging the right of black Georgians to vote on account of their race or color in violation of Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act.”
Arizona AG Brnovich has now written in a letter to Carr “As the Attorney General of Arizona, another state where the DOJ is attempting to intimidate local officials, please know that we stand with you in this fight and will do whatever we can to push back against this blatantly political and unmerited attack.”
“The DOJ’s announcement today seems absurdly partisan, coming on the heels of S. 1, a defeated effort by Democrats to roll over the powers reserved for the states and nationalize our elections,” he continued. “The executive branch is now attempting to override the will of the legislature.”
“Today, the fight has come to Georgia. Tomorrow, it will be in Arizona, and if left unchallenged, the DOJ will intimidate other states in an attempt to undermine the Constitution and force submission to the relentless will of the current federal administration. We must not be deterred by these threats,” Brnovich added “As state officials, we must all stand together to defend federalism and state sovereignty against federal overreach.”
