Despite the fact that the 2020 elections ended nearly two weeks ago, the outcome still hangs in the balance.
President Trump and Joe Biden are locked in a bitter contest over just a handful of remaining battleground states.
And in one critical battleground state, Trump just won a major legal battle that could change everything.
Officially, the 2020 Presidential Election ended on November 3rd.
But in reality, the outcome still remains in doubt as several states have yet to certify their election results.
And despite claims from Joe Biden’s campaign and his allies in the mainstream media, a winner in the election has yet to officially be declared.
With control of the White House coming down to three states, Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Arizona, political operatives on both sides are converging on the battlegrounds from across the country as a series of legal battles takes shape.
And in one must-win state for Trump, his legal team just scored a massive victory that could turn the media narrative up on its head.
The Pittsburg Post-Gazette, which notably endorsed a Republican for the Presidency for the first time since 1972 when it publicly backed President Trump’s re-election bid this year, reports the following:
“The Trump campaign on Thursday won a case that attempted to disqualify a small number of mail-in ballots for first-time Pennsylvania voters who were unable to confirm their identification by Nov. 9.”
These ballots could end up making the difference between victory and defeat for both Trump and Biden, and the ruling strikes a serious blow to any attempts to rig the election by returning non-post marked ballots that were filled out after the November 3rd election.
In a contest as close as Pennsylvania’s, these ballots appeared to be on the verge of delivering the state to Joe Biden.
Now, there’s a serious legal barrier preventing the Democrats from using them at all.
The Post-Gazette continues, “Commonwealth Court President Judge Mary Hannah Leavitt ruled that Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar lacked authority when she issued guidance to county boards of election to count mail ballots so long as voters’ IDs were confirmed by Nov. 12.
It is not clear how many mail-in and absentee ballots fall into this category, and the Pennsylvania Department of State declined to comment on how many ballots would be affected. However, these ballots only applied to first-time voters whose identities had not been confirmed before the Nov. 9 deadline.”
For Trump’s campaign, the victory is a much needed one as media outlets have begun to call the state for Biden. However, the final outcome in the state, and thus the Presidency itself, remains undetermined until Pennsylvania certifies the official winner before mid-December, when the Electoral College gathers to formally elect the next President.
At current count, Trump’s campaign will need to win all three tossup states, Pennsylvania, Georgia, and Arizona, in order to win the Electoral College and a second term in the White House.
