Judges have tossed Trump campaign challenges in Michigan, Georgia


Judges have tossed legal battles Thursday that the president’s campaign had launched Wednesday as the presidential election stands in limbo with votes still being tabulated in a number of battleground states.

President Trump’s campaign alleged late absentee ballots in one Georgia county were illegally placed alongside on-time ballots instead of set aside, as required by state law. The issue involved about 53 ballots.

They called on the court to separate late-arriving ballots, but a judge dismissed the lawsuit Thursday.

In Michigan, the president’s campaign had argued their officials were not being able to witness the tabulation and supervision of ballots. But a judge batted that claim down Thursday.
