Joe Biden’s campaign said it’s “no surprise” that the Supreme Court shot down a lawsuit filed by Texas and 17 other states to overturn the election results in four swing states that went for the president-elect.

“The Supreme Court has decisively and speedily rejected the latest of Donald Trump and his allies’ attacks on the democratic process. This is no surprise — dozens of judges, election officials from both parties, and Trump's own attorney general have dismissed his baseless attempts to deny that he lost the election,” said campaign spokesperson Michael Gwin.

The victory lap comes after the Supreme Court shot down the lawsuit from Texas, 17 other states and 126 GOP members of the House that sought to reverse the election results from Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, four battlegrounds that went for Biden.
