What Texas Case at Supreme Court Could Mean for the Presidency
Texas this week asked the U.S. Supreme Court to hear its complaint that the states of Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, and Wisconsin unconstitutionally changed the rules in the run-up to the Nov. 3 presidential election.
Does the Texas lawsuit make a legally sound argument, and how likely is it that the Supreme Court will hear it?
President Donald Trump also asked Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, to argue the case since he is a former solicitor general of the state. How likely is that to happen, and what could it mean?
Hans von Spakovsky, manager of The Heritage Foundation’s Election Law Reform Initiative and senior legal fellow in Heritage’s Meese Center for Legal and Judicial Studies, joins “The Daily Signal Podcast” to answer these and other questions about the Texas complaint.
SCOTUS declined on Friday, December 11, 2020, to hear the Texas lawsuit against the states of Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, and Wisconsin.
