Donald Trump‘s campaign is now filing with the Supreme Court to stop the vote count in Pennsylvania.
The move follows his campaign’s decision to sue in Michigan to do the same thing on Wednesday (November 4).
“Given last night’s results, the vote in Pennsylvania may well determine the next President of the United States,” the motion from the re-election effort says, via Deadline.
“And this Court, not the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, should have the final say on the relevant and dispositive legal questions. The interests of justice and judicial economy strongly favor its participation in these proceedings,” it goes on to read.
“Trump’s Campaign is moving to intervene in the existing Supreme Court litigation over the Pennsylvania Supreme Court’s unlawful extension of the mail-in ballot receipt deadline. The law is on President Trump’s side: as the Eighth Circuit just said, to change the ballot receipt deadline is in fact a change of the time, place, and manner of the election—and only a state legislature or the United States Congress can do that under the Constitution,” said Trump 2020 Deputy Campaign Manager Justin Clark.
There have been no reports of fraud or any type of ballot concerns out of Pennsylvania, AP reports. The state had 3.1 million mail-in ballots that take time to count and an order allows them to be counted up until Friday if they are postmarked by November 3.
Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro said in a CNN interview the lawsuit was “more a political document than a legal document.”
At the same time, Biden is making history with his vote count.
