Six NC congressmen urge U.S. Supreme Court to overturn 2020 election results

RALEIGH (WTVD) -- Six North Carolina GOP congressmen are among more than 100 members of Congress to sign a brief supporting a lawsuit from Texas that calls for the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn the 2020 election results in four key swing states.

The six Republican congressmen include Dan Bishop, Ted Budd, Virginia Foxx, Richard Hudson, Greg Murphy and David Rouzer.

The Texas lawsuit, signed by 106 members of Congress, argues that Pennsylvania, Michigan, Arizona and Georgia unlawfully followed their own state laws, including to expand absentee ballots by mail-in voting. President-elect Joe Biden won all four of the states being challenged.

So far, the Supreme Court has yet to reveal whether it will acknowledge the arguments in the Texas case.

The case comes less than a week before the Electoral College is set to finalize the selection of the next president.

Pres. Donald Trump continues his push to overturn the 2020 presidential election results.

North Carolina Attorney General Josh Stein announced that he is among 22 other attorneys general working to oppose the Texas lawsuit calling it 'radical' and 'anti-democratic'.

North Carolina Sen. Thom Tillis says he will consider Joe Biden's win official after electors meet on Monday.

"Yeah, I think he's the presumptive President-elect, but we just can't dismiss that there are filings that deserve to go through the justice system like anybody else in America," Tillis said.
