Trump Campaign Declares Victory in Pennsylvania, Takes Legal Action to Preserve Election Integrity

The Trump campaign has filed a lawsuit in the state of Pennsylvania to ensure the integrity of the legal vote counting process there. And in a conference call with reporters, campaign manager Bill Stepien: “We are declaring a victory in Pennsylvania.”

First, the Trump campaign believes it will win in the Keystone State because, according to its mathematical calculations, Joe Biden needs to win 78% of the remaining ballots in Pennsylvania to capture the election, a virtually impossible task made more difficult by the fact that some of the places with ballots left to count are in Republican areas.

There are more than a million ballots left to be counted, including roughly 300,000 in Philadelphia. Using extremely conservative estimates, even if President Trump receives just 5% of ballots in Philadelphia and 30% of other remaining ballots, the trump campaign believes the President still wins Pennsylvania by 40,000 votes. Many of the absentee ballots to be counted are from conservative counties such as Cumberland County, Westmoreland County – a county where President Trump won 69% of the vote yesterday, and Franklin County – a county where President Trump won more than 82% of the vote yesterday.

Secondly, the Trump campaign has taken legal action to ensure that that legal ballot counting process is not compromised and Justin Clark, Trump 2020 Deputy Campaign Manager, says the campaign has filed suit to intervene in current litigation in the state about which ballots can be counted and the integrity of that ballot counting process.

“This is the most important election of our lifetime, and President Trump made clear our path forward last night: ensure the integrity of this election for the good of the nation. Bad things are happening in Pennsylvania. Democrats are scheming to disenfranchise and dilute Republican votes. President Trump and his team are fighting to put a stop to it.

“Pennsylvania’s unhinged, radical left Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar has tried her hardest to bake in a backdoor to victory for Joe Biden with late, illegal ballots in collusion with the partisan state supreme court. The United States Constitution is clear on this issue: the legislature sets the time, place, and manner of elections in America, not state courts or executive officials. As the President has rightly said, the Supreme Court must resolve this crucial contested legal question, so President Trump’s Campaign is moving to intervene in the existing Supreme Court litigation over the Pennsylvania Supreme Court’s unlawful extension of the mail-in ballot receipt deadline. The law is on President Trump’s side: as the Eighth Circuit just said, to change the ballot receipt deadline is in fact a change of the time, place, and manner of the election—and only a state legislature or the United States Congress can do that under the Constitution.

“In addition to the Trump Campaign’s motion to intervene in Pennsylvania Republican Party v. Boockvar, we are taking two additional critical legal actions today to ensure the integrity of Pennsylvania’s election. We are suing to stop Democrat election officials from hiding the ballot counting and processing from our Republican poll observers—observers whose only job is to make sure every valid ballot is counted, and counted once. The eyes of the country are on Pennsylvania, but Pennsylvania has kept eyes off of the absentee ballot counting process all along, and that must stop today. In Philadelphia and elsewhere, Democrat officials forced our observers to stay 25 feet or more from the counting process, leaving no meaningful way whatsoever for our observers to do their jobs. We are also suing to temporarily halt counting until there is meaningful transparency and Republicans can ensure all counting is done above board and by the law.

“The Trump Campaign is also suing to stop Pennsylvania Democrats from breaking the very law that helps America vote—the Help America Vote Act (HAVA). While HAVA requires that states ensure certain first-time voters provide identification in order to vote, Secretary Boockvar—three days ago—re-wrote Pennsylvania Election Code to abuse her unilateral executive fiat and move the deadline for absentee and mail-in voters to provide missing proof of identification well past the deadline. Without our action, Pennsylvanians, and possibly all Americans, may be forced to wait yet another several days for the outcome of the election – all because of the Secretary’s ridiculous eleventh-hour guidance that directly violates the Election Code.

“With these key actions, President Trump is telling all Americans he will do whatever it takes to ensure the integrity of this election for the good of the nation.”

The campaign of President Donald trump has filed a lawsuit in the state of Michigan after it says election officials there prevented its officials from observing the vote counting process. The campaign wants to ensure the integrity of the vote tabulation in the key battleground state that is one of several that will determine the outcome of the election.

The decision comes after the Trump team indicated it will request a recount of the votes in Wisconsin.

With the outcome of the 2020 presidential election still very much in doubt and recounts, investigations and potential lawsuits likely looming, the head of President Donald trump campaign says he believes the president has a pathway to victory based on their estimation of the remaining battleground states.

In a phone call with reporters this morning, Trump 2020 campaign manager Bill Stepien explained that the campaign is confident that if all legally cast ballots are counted, President Donald Trump will be re-elected.

He said the campaign is confident the President will win states that have not yet been decided and added that Democrats are pushing to count late ballots because they are worried about our margins. The Trump campaign legal team is fighting to ensure that all legal ballots – and only legal ballots – are counted, he explained.

President Trump remains in a “very, very, very good position” to win re-election he said, even though early-morning vote leads in Wisconsin and Michigan shifted to Democrat Joe Biden.

“We are confident in our pathway. We are confident in our math. We said all along we are viewing some of these races as math equations,” Stepien said. “If we count all legal ballots, the president wins.”
