NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Mike Osborne)  --  Tennessee is one of 17 states that joined Texas this week in asking the Supreme Court to review President-elect Joe Biden’s election victories in four, key swing states.

Tennessee Attorney General Herbert Slattery III issued a statement Wednesday saying Texas is defending “important separation of powers principles.”

The Republican AG contends election officials in the four states improperly changed voting requirements without seeking approval from state lawmakers. 

Minutes later, Nashville Democratic State Senator Jeff Yarbro responded to Slattery’s statement, calling the AG’s move “embarrassing” and “a low point in the history of the office of the Tennessee Attorney General.”
