UNDATED (AP) – Democrats will argue before a federal judge in New Jersey Friday that Republicans are coordinating with Donald Trump to intimidate voters.

They are allegations that Democrats are making in at least four other states – allegations the Republican Party says are not true.

A federal judge in Las Vegas on Thursday said he hasn’t seen evidence that Trump’s campaign is training poll watchers to intimidate voters.

Judges will also hear arguments Friday in Ohio, and on Monday in Pennsylvania.
