The Republican National Committee is suing two Vermont cities over their controversial policies of allowing noncitizens to vote in municipal elections, according to a new report.

RNC chairwoman Ronna McDaniel told Fox News that the committee will sue Montpelier and Winooski in an attempt to thwart Democrats’ efforts to “dismantle the integrity of our elections.” 

“In addition to attacking widely supported safeguards like voter ID, Democrats also want foreign citizens to vote in American elections,” she said. “Republicans are fighting back on this far-left assault against election integrity — unlike radical Democrats, we believe that our elections should be decided solely by American citizens. This is a matter of principle and we will fight in all 50 states to ensure this remains the case.” 

The suit comes after the state Senate approved changes to the cities’ charters in May that will now allow noncitizens to vote on local issues despite pushback from Republican lawmakers and the governor, who vetoed the legislation.
