Trump Campaign Suing PA to Stop Vote Count
The Trump campaign is now suing Pennsylvania to stop the vote count. They are citing concerns over transparency as the reason for the lawsuit and are asking the Supreme Court to intervene in the case.
Said Justin Clark, Trump's Deputy Campaign Manager, the campaign is "suing to stop Democrat election officials from hiding the ballot counting and processing from our Republican poll observers." We want "to temporarily halt counting until there is meaningful transparency and Republicans can ensure all counting is done above board and by the law."
Clark said they would also ask the Supreme Court to intervene in the ongoing appeals case involving the deadline for receiving mail-in ballots in Pennsylvania. The Pennsylvania Supreme Court had previously ruled to extend the mail-in ballot deadline to Friday at 5 PM after the election. Trump is challenging that ruling and hoping the Supreme Court will take up the case.
This is the second lawsuit the Trump campaign filed on Wednesday. They also filed suit against Michigan earlier today asking them to halt all vote counting citing concerns over access to the ballots. Trump is also asking for a recount of Wisconsin alleging fraud.
Trump is currently leading in Pennsylvania 52.5% to 46.5% over Biden, but his lead has been slowly eroding throughout the day, as the pending ballots are counted. Biden currently leads in Michigan: 49.8% to 48.6% over Trump and is the projected winner for the state.
