DAGA Co-Chairs Praise SCOTUS Decision on Moore v. Harper

June 27, 2023

WASHINGTON, DC — The Democratic Attorneys General Association (DAGA) released the following statement today after the Supreme Court’s decision in Moore v. Harper. Democratic Attorneys General from 22 states filed an amicus brief in this case. North Carolina Attorney General Josh Stein’s office has been a part of the plaintiffs’ legal team.


Statement from DAGA Co-Chairs Delaware AG Kathy Jennings and Nevada AG Aaron Ford:

“Today’s decision is a resounding win for free and fair elections, where voters choose their politicians, and not the other way around. This lawsuit’s premise was dangerously flawed from the start, with a deeply misleading interpretation of our Constitution’s Elections Clause at the heart of it. This ruling protects our nation’s fundamental constitutional principles, which were put under extreme duress during the 2020 presidential election. From threats of violence to election administrators and workers, to frivolous lawsuits like Texas v. Pennsylvania that attempted to subvert the will of voters, to the violent insurrection on January 6th, 2021, we saw a blizzard of attacks on our electoral system that are deeply unacceptable. As Democratic Attorneys General, we are already working together in partnership to protect the next presidential election from those threats and more, just as we did in 2020.”
