According to Fox News, the campaign will announce the lawsuit during a news conference in Las Vegas on Thursday morning.
Former Director of National Intelligence Ric Grenell, former Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt, chairman of the American Conservative Union Matt Schlapp, and Nevada GOP Chair Michael McDonald are reportedly hosting the press conference.
According to the Trump campaign, there are “tens of thousands” of people who voted in the state are no longer state residents. The campaign claims that it seeks to ensure that every “legal” vote is counted. It also wants to make sure no “illegal” votes are counted, as reported by Fox News.
CNBC reported that Trump’s campaign has already filed suits in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Georgia in terms of ballot counting.

“Recklessly throwing ballots in the mail means illegal votes come back. Non-residents and dead people have voted. Democrats planned this. It’s an attack on our Democracy. We must only count LEGAL votes,” Grenell tweeted on Thursday morning.
During a Wednesday interview on Fox News’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Laxalt claimed that, “There is no question that Donald Trump would have won Nevada last night convincingly if we did not move to mail-in ballots.”
“We don’t know how [many] bad voters there are in this giant stack [of mail-in ballots]. We also know there are likely to be dead voters. There are likely to be people that have moved out of Las Vegas but found their ballots were still cast,” Laxalt said. “So, we’re looking into all of this,” he then added.
