The road to White House has ostensibly become ‘intractable,’ however, the racers, president Donald Trump (Republican party) and Joe Biden (Democratic party), still have remained fixated to reaching the (line) 270 electoral votes required to preside over the United States of America.
So far, the Democratic Biden is leading with 50.4% of the votes; whereas, the incumbent Trump has 48% according to the Associated Press.
Trump, who alleged electoral fraud, and “vote stealing” Wednesday as he slipped behind Biden, has announced through his campaign team an advancement to pursuing court actions to stop ballot counting in swing States Michigan and Pennsylvania, and to prevent the counting of absentee votes in Georgia which he claims arrived later than the election day deadline.
Initiating a multi-state legal battle against the Democratic contender, Trump’s campaign team is seeking an intervention, in the case of Pennsylvania, whether votes received up to three days after the election could be counted.
More so, the Trump campaign also revealed plans to seek a recount in Wisconsin, following a projection of Biden as the winner in the said State.
The campaign manager, Bill Stepien said, “There have been reports of irregularities in several Wisconsin counties which raise serious doubts about the validity of the results. The President is well within the threshold to request a recount and we will immediately do so.”
Taken together, the legal challenges are aimed at wiping out enough mail and absentee ballots to change the election outcomes before presidential electors could be awarded to Biden.
Nonetheless, Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro said the lawsuit was “more a political document than a legal document.”
“There is transparency in this process. The counting has been going on. There are observers observing this counting, and the counting will continue,” he said.
