The Trump campaign says it’s suing to stop the vote count in Pennsylvania over a lack of “transparency.”
Trump’s lead in the key swing state is narrowing as mail-in ballots are counted. The remaining votes are believed to heavily favor Democrats.
Justin Clark, Trump’s deputy campaign manager, says in a statement that the campaign is “suing to stop Democrat election officials from hiding the ballot counting and processing from our Republican poll observers.”
He says the campaign wants “to temporarily halt counting until there is meaningful transparency and Republicans can ensure all counting is done above board and by the law.”
Clark also says the campaign would seek to intervene in an ongoing Supreme Court case involving the deadline for receiving mail-in ballots.
There have been no reports by law enforcement of fraud or any type of ballot concerns out of Pennsylvania. The state had 3.1 million ballots mailed out that take time to count, and an order allows them to be counted up until Friday if they are postmarked by November 3.
Trump’s campaign earlier filed a lawsuit trying to halt the vote count in battleground Michigan as Biden took a slight lead there.
