Ted Cruz Calls on SCOTUS to Take Up Pennsylvania Election Challenge

Sen. Ted Cruz (R‑Texas) is urg­ing the U.S. Supreme Court to hear an appeal of a rul­ing by the Penn­syl­va­nia Supreme Court that dis­missed a GOP law­suit chal­leng­ing no-excuse mail-in vot­ing, and either seek­ing to block the state from cer­ti­fy­ing the elec­tion or direct­ing the gen­er­al assem­bly to choose its own electors.

Cruz, in a state­ment on Dec. 1, said, “This appeal rais­es seri­ous legal issues, and I believe the court should hear the case on an expe­dit­ed basis.”

The appeal, which comes in the form of an emer­gency peti­tion to U.S. Supreme Court Jus­tice Samuel Ali­to (pdf), asks the high court to pro­hib­it the Penn­syl­va­nia gov­er­nor and sec­re­tary of state from “tak­ing offi­cial action to tab­u­late, com­pute, can­vass, cer­ti­fy, or oth­er­wise final­ize the results of the elec­tion.” If such actions have tak­en place, the peti­tion asks for an injunc­tion that would nul­li­fy them and “restore the sta­tus quo” pri­or to certification.
