The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday rejected a last-ditch Republican request to block President-elect Joe Biden’s victory in Pennsylvania, dealing another blow to supporters of President Trump who have contested the Nov. 3 election across the country.
The court, in a routine one-sentence order, denied a bid by a Pennsylvania congressman and other Republicans who were pressing an emergency challenge to the state’s vote-by-mail system, enacted by its legislature in 2019.
“The application for injunctive relief presented to Justice Alito and by him referred to the Court is denied,” the order said.
The lawsuit asked that either all the 2.5 million mail-in ballots cast be thrown out, or that the courts erase Mr. Biden’s victory and direct the state’s GOP-controlled legislature to choose the winner of the state’s 20 electoral votes.
As is its custom in emergency orders, the court offered no reasoning in rejecting the challenge. No justice noted a dissent to the Supreme Court’s order.
Mr. Trump has said he believed the Supreme Court would eventually decide the election, and his campaign has pledged to take a case before the justices —three of whom were appointed by Mr. Trump—but it hasn’t done so. The case on Tuesday before the high court didn’t involve the Trump campaign as a litigant.
