‘Alternate’ Electors Cast Ballots for Trump in Key Swing States
This is all going according to Stephen Miller’s plan…but it’s still a long-shot.
President Donald J. Trump may be running out of options in his pursuit of a second term, but the ones that he has left are doozies.
State after state, and judge after judge, have dismissed lawsuits and other litigation brought to them by Trump’s legal team of Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis. Several other lawsuits, brought by Trump-aligned lawyers Sidney Powell and Lin Wood have similar been shooed away, leaving the Commander in Chief’s options dwindling.
But there is still a small sliver of hope for the MAGA movement, as White House adviser Stephen Miller’s “alternate electors” plan seems to have gained a bit of ground in key swing states.
While Democratic electors in Pennsylvania and Georgia cast their states’ electoral votes for Joe Biden on Monday, slates of Republican electors in those states cast votes for President Trump just in case legal challenges succeed.
The Pennsylvania GOP said in a press release that the Trump campaign asked the Republican electors to do this in order to preserve any potential rights to legal challenges that could overturn Monday’s vote. The Trump campaign and other Republicans have claimed that elections in states including Pennsylvania and Georgia ran afoul of state laws, compromising the ballot counts.
“We took this procedural vote to preserve any legal claims that may be presented going forward,” Trump campaign Pennsylvania chair Bernie Comfort said in a statement. “This was in no way an effort to usurp or contest the will of the Pennsylvania voters.”
Similar events took place in Georgia as well, leaving a number of new legal options available to the Trump campaign.
As Miller himself reiterated on Monday, the only date specified by the Constitution in regard to presidential transition is January 20th, leaving the Trump team several weeks to continue their efforts.
