Wayne Williams, Colorado’s secretary of state, speaks after arguments in a lawsuit were heard Monday outside the federal courthouse in downtown Denver. A federal judge dealt a severe setback Monday to a long-shot plan to deny Donald Trump the presidency through the Electoral College, refusing to suspend a Colorado law requiring the state’s nine electors to vote for the presidential candidate who won the state in November.
