“Arizonans know first-hand how elected officials can fail to respect the law,” Arizona’s Attorney General Mark Brnovich said. “Attorneys General have a duty to ensure state laws receive a faithful defense regardless of the inaction of other government officials.”
The other states, which have earlier backed Texas include Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, and West Virginia.
Also today, President Donald Trump announced that he will intervene with the lawsuit as a presidential re-election candidate during the said election.

It was also reported that the president asked Texas Senator Ted Cruz to argue with the case once a hearing pursues in the Supreme Court, which the latter answered yes.
President Trump asked Sen. Ted Cruz for a big favor this week. In the unlikely case that Texas attorney general’s election fraud lawsuit reaches the Supreme Court, the president wanted to know if Senator Cruz would make the oral arguments.
Cruz said yes. https://t.co/4GWwkbT3dB
