Alaska Gov. Mike Dunleavy announced his state will join a lawsuit attempting to overturn the results of the presidential election, days after Dunleavy said there is an “outside chance” Joe Biden will become the next U.S. president.
Dunleavy released a statement Thursday saying Alaska had joined a Texas case challenging election results in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Wisconsin and Michigan.
“While this case concerns election integrity, it also has an impact on state’s rights,” Dunleavy said.
Signing onto cases involving “the inner workings of other states” should not be taken lightly by Alaskans, Dunleavy said.
“However, the issue of election integrity impacts all of us, and the question of free and fair elections must be answered in order for all Americans to have confidence in our system,” Dunleavy said. “We hope for an expedited decision from the Supreme Court.”
The Texas lawsuit demands that the 62 total Electoral College votes from the four states be invalidated. That’s enough if set aside, to swing the election to Trump. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton’s lawsuit repeats a litany of false, disproven and unsupported allegations about mail-in ballots and voting in the four battlegrounds.
