President Donald Trump hopes to regain election momentum from former Vice President Joe Biden with a series of lawsuits.
The Trump campaign filed suits in three states on Wednesday — Georgia, Michigan, and Pennsylvania — and is having conversations about potentially filing a similar suit in Arizona. All of the suits seek to halt mail-ballot counting until campaign operatives are granted some type of “meaningful access” to ballot counting locations and are allowed to review all previously opened and counted ballots to verify the tally.
The Georgia suit in particular focuses on Chatham County and looks to separate ballots received after 7:00pm on Election Day from the total, citing an allegation from a ballot counter who claimed to have seen a stack of 53 ballots added for processing, despite being received after the 7:00pm deadline.
