While President Trump’s potential paths to victory have been routinely dismissed by state and local judges, the latest lawsuits brought in the case could be a glimmer of hope for the incumbent Republican.
One suit, filed by the State of Texas, is asking the Supreme Court to examine the balloting procedures of several key swing states.
Another, brought by Rep. Mike Kelly of Pennsylvania, has garnered the attention of Senator Ted Cruz, who offered to argue the case in court.
“Because of the importance of the legal issues presented, I’ve publicly urged #SCOTUS to hear the case brought by Congressman Mike Kelly, congressional candidate Sean Parnell & state rep. candidate Wanda Logan challenging the constitutionality of the POTUS election results in PA,” Cruz tweeted.
“Petitioners’ legal team has asked me whether I would be willing to argue the case before the Supreme Court, if the Court grants certiorari. I have agreed and told them that if the court takes the appeal, I will stand ready to present the oral argument,” Cruz tweeted.
President Trump’s legal team faces another unforeseen challenge this week as well: Both Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis have been sidelined after testing positive for COVID-19.
