While most people were out voting (there’s still time in most states!) lawyers for Donald Trump were in court in Nevada this afternoon.

They’d filed a complaint saying early voting polling stations stayed open two hours longer than they were supposed to past Friday night. Clark County witnessed early voter turnout in record numbers, allowing Democrats a significant lead in today’s polling.

The campaign wanted the ballots and voting machines from those polling stations, as well as the names of poll workers, impounded and preserved. The judge was not sympathetic.

She asked the campaign’s lawyer how he’d protect those workers from being harassed.

2016, right there, is what that was.
