10 GOP Attorneys General Back Lawsuit Challenging Pennsylvania Mail-In Ballots

Republican attorneys general from ten states have filed an amicus brief in the GOP lawsuit challenging the extension of counting mail-in ballots in Pennsylvania, urging the U.S. Supreme Court to intervene and reverse the decision.

“The Pennsylvania Supreme Court’s decision overstepped its constitutional responsibility, encroached on the authority of the Pennsylvania legislature, and violated the plain language of the Election Clauses,” reads the brief, signed by attorneys general in Ohio, Texas, Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, South Dakota, Kentucky, Missouri, Mississippi, and Oklahoma.

“Free and fair elections are the cornerstone of our republic and it’s one of the reasons why the United States is the envy of the world,” Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt said at a press conference announcing the brief. “We have to ensure that every legal vote cast is counted and that every illegal vote not cast is not counted. To do so would disenfranchise millions of Americans.”

The U.S. Supreme Court in October ruled that Pennsylvania could count mailed-in ballots received up to three days after the Nov. 3 election, rejecting a Republican plea in the presidential battleground state.

Many news outlets have called the race for Democrat challenger Joe Biden, though President Donald Trump has refused to concede, citing voter fraud.

Newsmax has yet to call the election.
