Supreme Court Unanimously Rejects Bid to Reverse Certification of Pennsylvania Election Results

The Supreme Court has rejected Republicans’ Hail-Mary attempt to reverse Pennsylvania’s certification of its election results, which showed a victory for President-elect Joe Biden.

The 9-0 ruling, issued without comment Tuesday evening, declined to question the state’s certification process. Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf certified Biden’s victory on Nov. 24, and the state’s 20 electors are set to cast their votes for Biden when the Electoral College meets on Dec. 14.

Since the election was called for Biden on Nov. 7, the Trump administration has filed numerous lawsuits in multiple battleground states that President Trump lost, including Nevada, Arizona, Georgia, Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania. The Trump team’s dozens of lawsuits have not been successful, and all the states have already certified their election results.

Biden won November’s election with 306 electoral votes to Trump’s 232, mirroring Trump’s total from four years ago. Biden also beat Trump by over seven million votes, though their respective totals were the two highest for any presidential candidate in American history.
