A judge in Chatham County, Georgia, home to the Democrat-leaning city of Savannah, dismissed the Trump campaign’s lawsuit during a Thursday morning hearing, according an official in the judge’s office.
The suit alleged that the county may be mishandling ballots and therefore inadvertently mixing up ballots that arrived on time with ones that arrived late. The suit was based on one allegation from an out-of-state Republican poll observer and involved less than 60 ballots.
The suit, filed alongside the Georgia Republican Party, sought to order the county to compile, store and account for all ballots received after 7 p.m. on Election Day (the receipt deadline).
– The percentage of expected vote reporting in Pennsylvania has ticked up from 89% to 92%, as Biden continues to narrow his defecit with Trump from 164,414 votes to 121,857.
Trump now leads in the Keystone State with 3,226,685 votes — 50.3% — while Biden has 3,104,828 — 48.4%.
There are roughly 560,000 outstanding votes that have yet to be counted statewide, including 581,167 mail-in ballots, according to the latest data from the Pennsylvania Department of State.
Biden would need about 60.8% of the remaining ballots to eclipse Trump’s 3,226,685 tally in order to win the state.
