Republicans challenge Pennsylvania’s mail-in voting law anew | Ap

It is the latest fight over voting laws in the premier battleground state. The lawsuit comes barely two months before voters can send in mail-in ballots in the fall election featuring high-profile contests for governor and the U.S. Senate.
