The RNC saw the Democrats doing some nefarious things with Florida election law and they legally intervened.
They just won.
According to Town Hall:
When the RNC saw that Democrats were trying to abolish a state law in Florida to allow ballots to be counted after Election Day and to prohibit the state’s ban on ballot harvesting, they had to intervene.
As it turns out, it was a President Bill Clinton-appointed judge who gave the Republicans the victory. In his ruling in Nielsen v. DeSantis, Judge Robert Hinkle noted that “the plaintiffs have not shown likely success on the merits” of their case. He explained why it’s imperative for the state law to remain intact.
“This eliminates the problem of missing, unclear, or even altered postmarks, eliminates delay that can have adverse consequences, and eliminates the remote possibility that in an extremely close election—Florida has had some—a person who did not vote on or before election day can fill out and submit a ballot later,” Hinkle said.

Great news! A Clinton-appointed judge handed us a major victory in Florida.
Democrats sued to force counting of ballots cast *after* Election Day & prohibit the state’s ban on ballot harvesting, but the judge sided with us.

The RNC is currently fighting the same battle in Minnesota where groups say that state’s absentee voting restrictions “unjustifiably burden” the voting rights of Minnesota voters.
