The Trump campaign’s Pennsylvania federal lawsuit is now in appeals court, where it faces extremely rough sledding after the state certified its results on Tuesday.
President Trump was dealt another defeat when Pennsylvania certified the election results because that was what the lawsuit was seeking to prevent. The campaign had filed the lawsuit in federal court and alleged that absentee votes were wrongfully counted in some counties.
Zack Smith, a legal scholar at the Heritage Foundation, said this lawsuit, like many of the others the campaign has filed, faces an “uphill battle,” particularly given that the state has now certified its results.
“If they are seeking to stop the certification, obviously, that’s going to cause problems for their lawsuit,” he said.
Smith noted that there is nothing stopping the campaign from filing a different lawsuit now that the results have been certified. He said “a lot” of election-related litigation typically doesn’t occur until results have been certified.
