Pennsylvania certifies election results, declares Joe Biden victorious in latest blow to Trump


from RT:

Pennsylvania has certified Joe Biden as the winner of the state’s 20 Electoral College votes. The decision follows similar moves in the swing states of Georgia and Michigan, but the Trump campaign has vowed to keep fighting.

Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf announced the certification on Tuesday, locking in the state’s 20 electors for the Democratic candidate. According to state officials, Biden won Pennsylvania by around 80,000 votes, or a margin of 1.2 percent.


The certification comes a day after Michigan certified its results, and two days after Georgia did the same. Both states were certified for Biden, but President Donald Trump’s campaign has alleged the former vice president’s victories there were fraudulent.

In a statement following Michigan’s certification, campaign lawyer Jenna Ellis said “certification by state officials is simply a procedural step,” and that the president’s legal team will continue to fight the results in court.

Citing irregularities with mail-in ballots and closed-doors counting in Philadelphia, the Trump campaign is currently en route to the US Supreme Court with a case that lawyer Rudy Giuliani claims will invalidate more than 680,000 ballots that were cast “illegally, wittingly or unwittingly” in Pennsylvania.

The case has already been thrown out of a federal court in the Keystone State, but will be heard by an appeals court in Pennsylvania, and then, Giuliani stated on Saturday, by the Supreme Court.
