This is the case that was brought my Congressman Mike Kelly and the order says: “The application for injunctive relief presented to Justice Alito and by him referred to the Court is denied.”
Which means that Ted Cruz won’t be arguing the case before the Supreme Court.
I guess Congress could still reject Pennsylvania’s electors in January, but it feels like even more of an uphill battle without the Supreme Court having declared the law state law unconstitutional.
But don’t forget the Supreme Court did agree to hear the Texas case, and perhaps this decision means there could be merit to that case?
UPDATE: From Mark Levin:
Sadly, SCOTUS could not or would not cobble together 4 members to stop the lawlessness that took place by PA officials. It was a very solid case with clear federal ramifications but they denied relief. I’ll discuss at length on my radio show this evening.https://t.co/J1Rccts2iv
