Trump campaign, Republicans drop challenge to ballot count case in Nevada

The Trump campaign and Nevada state Republicans have dropped their challenge to ballot counting in the Las Vegas area in the state Supreme Court, The Associated Press reports.

The campaign had tried to appeal a Nov. 2 ruling in Carson City that neither the state nor Clark County did anything to give one vote preference over another, AP notes. It tried to withdraw the appeal last week, saying that it reached a settlement in which Clark County election officials would allow more observers at a ballot processing facility, but all parties did not agree to the settlement.  

Clark County, which is home to Las Vegas, is typically a Democratic-leaning county.

The Nevada secretary of state, the Clark County registrar of voters, and the national and state Democratic parties were also involved in the case, AP notes. 

There are still two active cases in the state related to the presidential election, and ballots are still being counted.
