The Trump campaign suffered another setback in their efforts to overturn the results of the election, this time in Wisconsin.
The Associated Press reports that the state’s Supreme Court declines to hear a Trump campaign lawsuit challenging the election results in the state.
After the state certified their results, the Trump campaign bypass the circuit courts where challenges to election results are usually filed, to ask the state’s Supreme Court to disqualify more than 221,000 ballots in two big Democratic counties, alleging irregularities in the way absentee ballots were administered.
On Thursday, the 4-3 conservative majority on the state Supreme Court ruled that the case must first make its way through lower courts, refusing to discuss the merits of the cases.
Attorney for Donald Trump, Jim Troupis said he would immediately file the case in circuit court.
But time is not on their side and the campaign was aware of this. That’s why they took the case directly to the Supreme Court in the first place. In their initial filing, they argued that there wasn’t enough time to wage the legal battle by starting with a lower court, given the looming Dec. 14 date when presidential electors cast their votes.
