PHOENIX — A bid by Attorney General Mark Brnovich to dictate what is in the state’s Election Procedures Manual is nothing short of “an attempted coup d’etat,’’ according to a lawyer for Secretary of State Katie Hobbs.

In new court filings, Roopali Desai said Hobbs complied with state law by drafting a new version of the manual and submitting it to Brnovich for his approval. But rather than have a discussion of the differences, she said the attorney general simply demanded she accede to the changes he wants.
