Republican lawmakers in the Pennsylvania state legislature have filed a document with the U.S. Supreme Court supporting Texas’ lawsuit looking to invalidate the election results in the Keystone State as well as Wisconsin, Georgia, and Michigan.

The amicus brief blasted the Pennsylvania Supreme Court for "offering extrajudicial guidance to the Commonwealth’s county boards of elections. These efforts were condoned and furthered by the overreaching of Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court, in clear violation of the requirements of the U.S. Constitution.''

Texas’ lawsuit was the latest in a series of court challenges filed by President Donald Trump and allies seeking to void the election results. While many of the other suits have claimed fraud and other irregularities in six states — the four named as well as Nevada and Arizona — the Texas suit is a constitutional challenge against actions by executive officials and courts, whom it says unilaterally altered state laws intended to prevent fraud and thus disenfranchised voters in Texas.

Seventeen states have filed briefs supporting the Texas case.
