A federal judge in Yakima, Washington, granted a nationwide injunction sought by several states that had accused DeJoy, a longtime Republican donor, of implementing changes that could delay delivery of time-sensitive absentee ballots and undermine confidence in election results in November, Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson said Thursday in a tweet.
