Elias Knocking Out Wins Like Bowling Pins

Marc Elias, an attorney for the Democratic Party, has already won in North Carolina after filing a lawsuit this afternoon to extend voter registration to Oct. 19.

He tweeted this in celebration just after 5 p.m.:

The win comes literally moments after most large news organizations had gotten wind of the lawsuit. Reuters, for example, had published their piece announcing the existence of the suit only 13 minutes before Elias declared victory.
