WASHINGTON — U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito has moved up a deadline related to a case challenging the presidential election results from Pennsylvania.

President Donald Trump and his allies are challenging Joe Biden’s win in Pennsylvania and other states alleging voter fraud and illegal mail-in votes.

Alito has set a Tuesday deadline for a response from the state of Pennsylvania in the case which questions the legality of mail-in and absentee ballot rules.The previous deadline was Wednesday. The Tuesday deadline does fit into safe harbor legal rules regarding the questioning of Electoral College electors.

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court and federal courts have dismissed other Trump campaign lawsuits alleging improper voting procedures and voter fraud led to project President-elect Joe Biden’s victory in the 2020 race. 

The U.S. Supreme Court is being asked to take up one of the Pennsylvania challenges and will likely be asked to consider Trump's voter fraud claims in Wisconsin, Nevada, Georgia and Michigan.

Trump said at a rally Saturday in Valdosta, Georgia that he wants the Supreme Court to hear his claims of voter fraud in key states won by Biden.

“It’s rigged. It’s a fixed deal,” Trump said during the rally of the 2020 results and Biden’s victory.

The Trump campaign has seen a number of its lawsuits challenging the results and alleging voter fraud tossed by state and federal courts as Biden continues with his transition efforts.
