If MI is called for Biden already and AZ doesn’t somehow pull a fast one, Biden could potentially be projected as President.


Need NV as well

I was curious about how litigious Donnie has been. From the ABA Journal site, April 2020

While Donald Trump had no experience in working in government or in public service when he became president of the United States, he brought an astounding history of involvement in thousands of lawsuits to the nation’s highest office. Former federal prosecutor and author James D. Zirin illuminates more than 45 years of Trump’s legal disputes in his new book, Plaintiff in Chief: A Portrait of Donald Trump in 3,500 Lawsuits, published in September 2019.

As a federal prosecutor, Zirin spent decades handling complex litigation. He’s also a self-described “middle-of-the-road Republican.” Plaintiff in Chief is not a partisan screed but a carefully documented legal study.

In his book, Zirin scrupulously details Trump’s life in courts of law. Based on more than three years of extensive research, the book examines illustrative cases and how they reflect on the character and moral perspective of the current president. Zirin references page after page of court records and other evidence to illustrate Trump’s legal maneuvering.

As Zirin points out, Trump learned how to use the law from his mentor, notorious lawyer Roy Cohn. Trump took Cohn’s scorched-earth strategy to heart.

“Trump saw litigation as being only about winning,” Zirin writes. “He sued at the drop of a hat. He sued for sport; he sued to achieve control; and he sued to make a point. He sued as a means of destroying or silencing those who crossed him. He became a plaintiff in chief.”

Donald Trump’s reelection campaign has said it is also suing to halt vote-counting in Pennsylvania, after announcing a similar lawsuit in Michigan.
“Bad things are happening in Pennsylvania,” deputy campaign manager Justin Clark said in a statement. “Democrats are scheming to disenfranchise and dilute Republican votes. President Trump and his team are fighting to put a stop to it.”
There is no evidence Democrats are attempting to “disenfranchise” Republican voters. Pennsylvania election officials continue to count valid ballots cast by election day.
The Trump campaign said it would also sue to challenge the ruling upholding an extension to count Pennsylvania absentee ballots that were postmarked by election day.
“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,” Clark said.
But the supreme court already rejected a request from Pennsylvania Republicans to overturn the extension last week.

At what point does McConnell decide to put Trump out to pasture?

This result is almost ideal for establishment Republicans. Why get bogged down in Trump's Hail Mary lawsuits? They are better off obstructing Biden, blaming everything about COVID on him, screaming about how our children will drown in the deficit and priming the country for Niki Haley 2024.

I actually feel better about NV than I do AZ even though some networks have called the state for Biden.

I think this is sound logic. If it becomes clear Biden has 270 in the EC, what incentive does anyone (other than Trump) have to wade through endless lawsuits and recounts?

With the Trump team desperately trying to stop counting in PA and declaring victory there, I am very comfortable in saying that Joe Biden will win PA.

Trump's campaign is saying they've won Penn

They have not, in fact, won Penn

63 percent of Philly county is reporting and they've voted 78 percent for Biden. This is the only time I will cheer for Philly.

I think looking at the numbers, I’m feeling really confident about GA.

Biden is down 70k with 360k left to go with a average on the 70% leaning towards Biden in those precincts. If those percentages hold, I see no reason why Biden doesn’t win.

Trump would describe it as a "shit hole town" for sure, but they voted for him.

Very still tight in GA. Trump now ahead by 76,000 votes, with 360,000 votes outstanding from mostly blue areas.

I am using what MSNBC just said, so I hope this is right. Biden would need to win them by 61 - 39 in order to take the lead, and we may know tonight.
