It’s one of the last, but biggest, challenges by President Donald Trump supporters looking to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election.
The Supreme Court denied to hear an injunction by Rep. Mike Kelly, R-P.A., that sought to stop Pennslyvania from certifying their Electoral College votes on the so-called “safe harbor” deadline on Tuesday.

Even Trump’s most ardent supporters have acknowledged that the Supreme Court decision was disappointing.
In response to the loss, though, Trump’s team announced they were joining a lawsuit from Texas’ Attorney General Ken Paxton. Paxton has filed a lawsuit against the states of Georgia, Michigan, Pennslyvania, Arizona, and Wisconsin over the constitutionality of their election proceedings.
Texas isn’t alone. Missouri’s Attorney General announced his team is joining the lawsuit on Wednesday.
The goal of the suit is to present Trump’s case before the Supreme Court before Congress is presented the results of the election on Jan. 6th. They want the Supreme Court to intervene on behalf of the president.
Without intervention from the highest court in the land, Trump supporters in Congress have little hope to overturn the Electoral College votes. At that point, a majority in both the Senate and the House would have to vote to deny the results of certain states — and the Democratic Party controls the House by a thin margin.
That means the lawsuit by Texas and Missouri is one of Trump’s last, best hopes of stopping Joe Biden from being sworn-in on Jan. 20th as the 46th President of the United States.

Trump seemed to acknowledge the gravity of the situation in a social media statement on Wednesday —
We will be INTERVENING in the Texas (plus many other states) case. This is the big one. Our Country needs a victory!

Since they began their legal challenges, Trump’s lawyers have frequently presented hundreds of affidavits, alleged surveillance video footage, and witness testimony in state hearings on the integrity of the election.

While they’ve also frequently appeared before courts, lead lawyers Rudy Guiliani and Jenna Ellis have disappointed Trump backers with their results. Still, the team has vowed to fight on. But should they?
We want to hear from you.
What are your thoughts now that the “safe harbor” date has passed?
Should Trump and his team concede following the disappointing Pennslayvania lawsuit results?
Should the president fight until the Electoral College vote, and — if they lose — concede?
If that happens, should they wait until the results are presented before Congress on Jan. 6th?
Or should Trump never, ever concede… no matter what happens?
