The Arizona Republican Party asked followers on Twitter if they are prepared to give their lives to help President Donald Trump overturn an election he lost.
The Arizona GOP retweeted a post by right-wing “stop the steal” activist Ali Alexander, who vowed that he is "willing to give my life for this fight."
"He is. Are you?" the state GOP tweeted.
The account later shared a clip from one of the Rambo films in which Sylvester Stallone’s character tells his cohorts to "live for nothing, or die for something."
Arizona GOP takes lawsuit to state Supreme Court:
Arizona GOP Chairwoman Kelli Ward is appealing a lower court ruling to the state Supreme Court after a judge rejected her bid to challenge election results.
A judge in Maricopa County ruled that Ward failed to prove that there was fraud in her attempt to challenge the results in the Phoenix area and that the evidence she presented would not reverse Trump’s loss in the state.
Four previous lawsuits challenging the state’s results were likewise dismissed.
Judges in every contested state have now rejected more than three dozen lawsuits from Trump and his allies.
Attorney General Bill Barr said last week that the Justice Department has not seen any evidence of fraud that would change the result of the race.
Texas joins fight:
Texas Republicans also joined the fight with Attorney General Ken Paxton filing a dubious lawsuit to the Supreme Court against Georgia, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania, alleging that their election changes amid the pandemic were unlawful.
The lawsuit claimed that new mail-in voting expansions diminished "the weight of votes cast in states that lawfully abide by the election structure set forth in the Constitution."
The lawsuit asks the Supreme Court to block the Electoral College votes of the four states, though the court is not expected to agree to hear the case.
