Clinton campaign, Democratic Party sue Arizona over primary voting problems

The Hillary Clinton campaign and Democratic Party joined Thursday to sue Arizona over voting problems in last month's presidential primary, including long lines that had residents waiting hours to cast their ballots.

A senior party official confirmed the voting rights lawsuit to Fox News.

The Washington Post first reported on the suit, which comes after thousands were stuck waiting hours to vote in the March primary.

"The suit is a response to decisions that caused extremely long lines and needlessly disenfranchised voters, especially minority voters, during the state's March 22nd presidential primary election, and includes affected voters the Arizona Democratic Party, and the Ann Kirkpatrick for Senate campaign as plaintiffs," the official said.
