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.:
Big win in North Carolina--court extends voter registration deadline until Oct 19 in 36 counties affected by hurricane.— Marc E. Elias (@marceelias) October 14, 2016
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.
