The Trump campaign said it filed lawsuits Wednesday in Pennsylvania and Michigan, laying the groundwork for contesting the outcome in undecided battleground states.
Suits in both states are demanding better access for campaign observers to locations where ballots are being processed and counted, the campaign said. The campaign also is seeking to intervene in a Pennsylvania case at the Supreme Court that deals with whether ballots received up to three days after the election can be counted, deputy campaign manager Justin Clark said.
Trump campaign manager, Bill Stepien, had at a press conference alleged without providing evidence that his team had not been allowed legally guaranteed access to observe vote counting in “numerous” locations.
The president had earlier lamented the sudden large votes being recorded by Biden in Michigan, Nevada, and Wisconsin.
The ex-vice president will be declared winner of the elections if he maintains the lead.
“They are finding Biden votes all over the place — in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Michigan. So bad for our country!.
“Wow! It looks like Michigan has now found the ballots necessary to keep a wonderful young man, John James, out of the U.S. Senate. What a terrible thing is happening!
“We are winning Pennsylvania big, but the PA Secretary of State just announced that there are “millions of ballots left to be counted,” Trump wrote on Twitter.
