A Republican is suing after losing an election to a Navajo candidate in San Juan County, Utah.
Kelly Laws wants a judge to overturn Democrat Willie Grayeyes’ victory in the San Juan County commission race over questions about his residency.
Grayeyes said the residency question is a political attack as Navajos are poised to form a majority of the three-person commission for the first time.
Laws argues in the lawsuit that Grayeyes lacks a Utah driver license, spends time with his girlfriend in Arizona and owns a horse in Arizona.
This dustup comes after a federal judge re-drew county voting districts, saying the old ones were discriminatory of Navajo voters.
Navajo residents make up more than half the population of San Juan County.
