The campaign of President Donald Trump got a big victory in a Nevada case as a judge has granted an evidentiary hearing in its contest-of-election case.
Judge James Russell set a date of December 3 to hear from witnesses and see evidence in the case, The Associated Press reported.
It is a mega story but the Associated Press made the headline about a state Senate seat in which the Republican lost, “Judge rejects bid for re-vote in Nevada state Senate race.”
BIG news in Nevada: a Judge has allowed NV Republicans to present findings of widespread voter fraud in a Dec. 3rd hearing. Americans will now hear evidence from those who saw firsthand what happened—a critical step for transparency and remedying illegal ballots. Stay tuned.

The story about the Trump team victory appeared on the tenth paragraph which, in the business, is called burying the lead.
The campaign’s head attorney in Nevada, Jesse Binnall, claims that there were enough fraudulent votes cast for former Vice President Joe Biden in the state to swing the election and that, in fact, it was President Trump who won the state.
“Trump insisted Tuesday in Washington that he wasn’t giving up his fight to overturn election results. However, windows are closing on his campaign’s legal efforts in key states including Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, and a Biden administration transition has begun,” the AP said.
What does that mean? That President Trump should discontinue his efforts because the clock is running out?
In the 2000 presidential election former Vice President Al Gore contested the election for over a month and the media did not appear to be concerned about time.
Shouldn’t the number one goal of journalists be to ensure that there was a fair vote and an accurate count of those votes so that no voter is disenfranchised?
White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows celebrated the news in a post on Twitter.
“BIG news in Nevada: a Judge has allowed NV Republicans to present findings of widespread voter fraud in a Dec. 3rd hearing. Americans will now hear evidence from those who saw firsthand what happened—a critical step for transparency and remedying illegal ballots. Stay tuned,” he said.
There is still time before the electors vote for the president in the electoral college and still more time before the inauguration. There is no reason for the president to quit now.
