Republicans sue for some reason...

According to this report, the state Republican Party is suing over election judges in three counties, saying that in Hennepin and Ramsey counties there are more Democrats that Republicans, and in Olmsted county there are more Republicans.

My serious question is what do they hope to accomplish by this lawsuit? I don't get it. Sure, there are more Democrats than Republicans in Minneapolis and Saint Paul, and more Republicans than Democrats in Rochester. Given the dearth of people willing to serve as election judges, turning willing people away because they are of the wrong party may not be the best idea. This lawsuit is asking for information to determine the political allegiance of judges. Then what?

It will be interesting to see where this goes.
