Supreme Court upholds restrictive Arizona voting laws

WASHINGTON (NBC News) — The Supreme Court on Thursday upheld two election laws in the 2020 battleground state of Arizona that challengers said make it harder for minorities to vote.

Civil rights groups were hoping the Supreme Court would use the Arizona...
