Perspectives: Trump Campaign's Election Lawsuits

AllSides Summary

President Donald Trump's campaign filed an election-related lawsuit in Arizona on Saturday after the campaign's lawsuits in Georgia and Michigan were dismissed earlier this week. Trump's campaign is also fighting Philadelphia election officials over vote counting, and attempted to intervene in a Supreme Court case challenging a decision that allowed election officials to count mail-in ballots delivered through Friday that were postmarked by Election Day. Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani said on Fox News that it would be "wrong for [Trump] to concede" and teased potential lawsuits in up to ten states due to concerns about election transparency. The lawsuits were filed in hopes of overturning state results that projected Joe Biden as the lection's winner; some legal analysis say the lawsuits' narrow scope is unlikely to change the outcome of the presidential race. Right-rated outlets tended to cover and provide analysis of the Trump campaign's lawsuits and Giuliani's remarks. Voices from left and center-rated outlets frame Trump's legal actions as an effort to delegitimize the 2020 election in the eyes of many Americans.
