The State of Arizona's elections practices are the target of a lawsuit that the Democratic National Committee and Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee are going to be fighting in federal court.

The lawsuit cites long lines from last month's voting, and other practices the DNC claims disenfranchise minorities. The legal action is aimed at influencing plans for the November general election, where Democrats say they fear unfair voting practices could suppress the election. Democrats suing Arizona over voter access takes on added meaning if Trump is GOP nominee. The state could be in play.
