Following President Donald Trump’s prominent legal setback in Pennsylvania, the president’s campaign and allies still have less far-reaching lawsuits pending in other states.
Trump suffered his last major legal defeat on Saturday, when a federal judge in Pennsylvania dismissed a campaign complaint that sought to invalidate millions of mail-order votes in the state.
According CNNThe lawsuit in Pennsylvania was the latest high-profile case for Trump to try to block or nullify enough votes to try to reverse President-elect Joe Biden’s triumph in his favor in pendulum states.
The defeat in Pennsylvania, which the Trump campaign has said it will appeal, is the thirty-fourth legal setback or withdrawal of the campaign lawsuit by the president and his allies to stop the counting of votes or block the certification of election results. presidential, according to a counting from prominent Democratic lawyer Marc Elias.
The campaign and its allies have only had two court wins, related to few votes, the network added.
Experts say chances of Trump reversing election results are slim to none, reported The Associated Press. Even so, the president still does not recognize Biden’s triumph and insists without showing evidence that there was fraud in the elections and his unfounded accusations are undermining confidence in the electoral system and creating in his supporters the idea that Biden is an illegitimate president.
Here are some of the prominent pending lawsuits, according to the AP:
The Trump campaign called for a recount of votes in Milwaukee and Dane counties, arguing without evidence that absentee ballots were illegally altered or sent and that government officials broke state laws.
The recount in heavily Democratic counties began on Friday, as Trump insists on trying to overturn tens of thousands of absentee ballots that he considers illegal. A Dane County election panel rejected Trump’s objections to throwing out the ballots.
The President is expected to use the same objections in Milwaukee before filing a lawsuit once the count is over, perhaps as early as Wednesday.
Biden won at Wisconsin, according to preliminary results.
The Trump campaign is asking a court to overturn the election results or set them aside and declare the president the winner, arguing that votes were improperly cast and that optical scanners to process signatures on mail-in ballots broke. state laws.
Trump’s lawsuit, however, compiles arguments that Nevada judges and other parties have already rejected.. For example, he argues that votes were cast for dead people, that election observers were unable to see key parts of the process, and that residents of Native American territories were given illegal incentives to vote.
A hearing has been scheduled for December 1.
On the other hand, an electoral monitoring organization led by a former conservative state legislator filed a lawsuit to try to block the state certification of the results. A judge rejected this request on Friday.
Biden won in Nevada, according to preliminary results.
The Trump campaign called for a vote recount in Georgia on Saturday, after the state certified the results after a manual recount.
The Trump campaign request, which is not a lawsuit, came a day after Georgia Governor Brian Kemp certified the election results, awarding Biden all 16 state electoral votes.
This time, the recount requested by the Trump campaign will not be manual but with machines.
Biden edged out Trump by 12,670 votes in the state, according to figures after the manual vote recount.
