Trump campaign ready to appeal to the Supreme Court from four states

National FileIn a move that seems to incorporate the direction that US Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito tacitly voiced in his accompanying statement Friday’s decision not to hear Texas’s lawsuit against Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Georgia, the Trump legal team is or has filed lawsuits in each of the Defendant States.

I can't bring myself to be optimistic about their chances after the Texas case got shot down, but at least it was shot down on standing and not the merits. We will see if the Supreme Court will hear cases with different standing arguments. This description of how the Wisconsin Supreme Court hearing went is a little disconcerting. While I'm unconvinced by yet another invocation of laches, and I think the legal claims about election procedures have more merit than the author does, the failure to present evidence of fraud given the opportunity is concerning.
