Georgia’s Supreme Court declined to hear an election challenge filed by President Donald Trump’s team ahead of the Dec. 14 Electoral College vote.
The appeal from Trump’s team asked the Georgia Supreme Court to consider the merits of the case before Dec. 14. It wasn’t clear why the court made its decision to reject the case.
Trump’s lawsuit in Georgia alleged that tens of thousands of people voted illegally in the state. Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger has said there’s no evidence of voter fraud that would overturn the result of the election.
Meanwhile, the U.S. Supreme Court dismissed Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton’s lawsuit against Georgia, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan—which drew support from about 20 other states. Paxton argued that last-minute changes to ballot-integrity measures in the four states weakened the integrity of the overall general election.
“We keep going and we’re going to continue to go forward. We have numerous local cases,” Trump said.
“We’re going to speed it up as much as we can, but you can only go so fast,” Trump told the network. “They give us very little time. But we caught them, as you know, as fraudulent, dropping ballots, doing so many things, nobody can even believe it.”
