Judge Sturman in Nevada has just ruled against the Trump campaign's lawsuit about alleged violations in early voting discrepancies.
Judge Gloria Sturman, of the District Court for Clark County Nevada, ruled from the bench, saying County Registrar of Voters Joe P. Gloria was already obligated by state law to maintain the records that the Trump campaign is seeking.
The judge at times expressed frustration with Brian Hardy, a lawyer for the Trump campaign.
"I am not ordering him (Gloria) to preserve anything," she said, adding, "This is Election Day. He has other things to be doing."
The registrar's office said in a statement that the Trump campaign's request to preserve the records "is required by state law, and so it is something we are already doing."
Veteran Nevada political reporter Jon Ralston dropped these bon mots after the hearing ended just minutes ago:
