18 states join Texas case seeking to overturn Biden win

Eighteen states have joined Texas in its lawsuit that seeks to halt presidential electors in four battleground states from casting their votes for President-elect Joe BidenJoe BidenObama: Ensuring democracy 'continues to work effectively' keeps me 'up at night' New Jersey landlords prohibited from asking potential tenants about criminal records Overnight Defense: Pentagon pulling some air defense assets from Middle East | Dems introduce resolution apologizing to LGBT community for discrimination | White House denies pausing military aid package to Ukraine MORE.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton (R) filed the lawsuit before the Supreme Court on Tuesday against Michigan, Georgia, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania — all states Biden won. It argues that electors from those states should not cast their votes because the states unconstitutionally changed their voting processes to allow for mail-in voting.

The defendant states are set to file their oppositions to the high court by 3 p.m. on Thursday, according to CNBC.

The bid comes as the president and his allies continue their attempts to cast doubt on the election results and allege widespread voter fraud.

Biden was projected to win the election about a month ago, but Trump and his allies have mounted multiple legal challenges to contest or overturn them. Most have been unsuccessful.

On Tuesday the Supreme Court rejected a bid by Pennsylvania Republicans to void the results of the state's election.

Meanwhile, the Electoral College will cast their ballots on Monday, finalizing Biden’s win.
