A federal judge in Montana rejected the Trump campaign’s effort to stop an expansion of mail-in voting in the state.
The Trump campaign and the Republican National Committee filed the lawsuit earlier this month after Democratic Montana Gov. Steve Bullock issued a directive allowing all counties in the state to switch to an essentially all-mail system for the 2020 election. But District Judge Dana Christensen ruled against Trump’s campaign on Wednesday and rejected its request to block the new voting rules.
In his ruling, the judge blasted the Trump-backed “fiction” that there is widespread voter fraud in US elections.
