Donald Trump (left) and Joe Biden
…The Trump campaign has filed lawsuits in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Arizona asking judges to stop state officials from certifying the vote in the US Presidential Election 2020.
Via Wall Street Journal:
Denying Mr. Biden the 47 electoral votes in those three states would block his path to securing a majority. Mr. Biden leads by about 50,000 votes, or 0.75%, in Pennsylvania; by about 146,000 votes, or 2.6%, in Michigan; and by about 13,000 votes, or 0.4%, in Arizona.
Few courts have considered similar requests in the past, leaving few precedents.
[States use their popular vote for president to send a set number of electors to formally vote for president in the Electoral College. The Constitution says state legislatures shall determine how the electors are chosen, leading to speculation about what would happen with deadlocked results.]
Asked about the Trump campaign’s attempts to delay certification in some states, Biden campaign general counsel Dana Remus said Tuesday: “They simply have no evidence, and to succeed in a lawsuit that will stop certification, there has to be evidence of a problem with the process.”
In Pennsylvania, government officials say the law doesn’t allow the Legislature to send up a pro-Trump set of electors.
Arizona is scheduled to certify its election results on Nov. 30. Michigan and Pennsylvania have deadlines of Nov. 23, under most circumstances.
@bet365 @Barnes_Law How can bet365 call in bets on a still running US election when the election is still live. Their decision is based upon an opinion of a media outlet. Not an official call. Media opinions differ. How does one take precedence over another?? @rahul_xr pic.twitter.com/I3ONeUGNdB
