Republicans in Pennsylvania have filed a lawsuit to block the certification of Pennsylvania election results.
A group of Pennsylvania Republicans have filed an emergency lawsuit seeking to block certification of the election results in the Keystone State, which President-elect Joe Biden won by more than 80,000 votes.
The emergency petition, filed in state court this weekend, comes ahead of Monday’s deadline for Pennsylvania counties to certify their voting results, part of the process of formalizing President Trump’s electoral defeat.
Among the plaintiffs are Trump ally Rep. Mike Kelly (R-Pa.), who has asked the court to strike down an expanded mail ballot policy that Pennsylvania put in place last year after it was passed by the state’s GOP-held legislature.
Trump has stood firm behind lawsuits in PA:
ELECTION LAWSUIT: Another lawsuit has been filed in regards to PA’s election results. Congressman Mike Kelly and candidate Sean Parnell claim “universal mail-in ballots” are unconstitutional. Lt. Governor Fetterman says there is no merit to this suit. @KDKA pic.twitter.com/YxWwXLTlbJ
