Bringing an "original jurisdiction" election challenge before the Supreme Court was a duty for Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton to protect his voters in Texas, he said Wednesday on Newsmax TV.
"I am encouraged that these other states have joined, and think there's a recognition that this is our last chance and we are running out of time," Paxton told Wednesday's "Stinchfield."
Paxton noted Texas had already "fought off" 12 lawsuits under his leadership in defending Texas' election against the unconstitutional election actions taken in the four battleground states in his lawsuit, including mass mail-in ballot attempts and signature verification restrictions proposed by Democrats.
"We were successful in maintaining our legislative stance, so my voters were protected," Paxton told host Grant Stinchfield. "But this is a national election and the fact this happened in other states has the impact of disenfranchising my voters, given that we had elections that were fair and by the law."
Paxton's case before the U.S. Supreme Court is called Texas v. Pennsylvania, but it includes key battlegrounds Michigan, Wisconsin, and Georgia. He laments the "stunning" lack of "common sense" of unconstitutionally changing state election law without proper due process in the legislatures.
"That's why so many Americans are frustrated, because you've got these courts of supposedly smart people as judges and it's almost common sense from the night of the election," Paxton said.
Calling his case "one of the most important issues of our time," Paxton said it is not just about deciding this presidential election, but all elections in the future.
"Not just for this election, but the future of our country and the future elections we either can trust or we can't trust," he concluded.
