On Saturday, Republican Sen. Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania said that the time has come for President Donald Trump to accept the outcome of the 2020 presidential election and begin the transition process.
In a statement, which is available in full on toomey.senate.gov, Toomey noted that Trump has lost yet another lawsuit.
“With today’s decision by Judge Matthew Brann, a longtime conservative Republican whom I know to be a fair and unbiased jurist, to dismiss the Trump campaign’s lawsuit, President Trump has exhausted all plausible legal options to challenge the result of the presidential race in Pennsylvania.”
Toomey pointed out that Brann’s decision followed a series of similar losses. The state of Georgia certified Democrat Joe Biden’s victory on Friday, after a thorough recount of votes. In Michigan, lawmakers pushed back against pressure from the Trump campaign and refused to select pro-Trump electors.
“I congratulate President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris on their victory,” Toomey stated.
