It was another good day for the Trump campaign. The president is now the winner of North Carolina’s 15 Electoral Votes. This blow to the Democrats was much worse as GOP Senator Thom Tillis also has been declared the winner there. Rudy Giuliani explained what’s next in this uphill battle, including the outcome of 682,000 ballots in Pennsylvania. Don’t miss this.

The Democrats and their candidate Joe Biden took a blow on Tuesday as the North Carolina race was called for President Trump by the mainstream media’s go-to source: “Decision Desk.”

This also was a blow to Democrat hopeful Cal Cunningham, who conceded his senate race to GOP Senator Thom Tillis on Tuesday afternoon.

“I just called Senator Tillis to congratulate him on winning re-election to a second term in the U.S. Senate and wished him and his family the best,” Cunningham said. 

Rudy Guiliani appeared on Newsmax on Tuesday where he outlined the situation in Pennslyvania. “There are 682,000 votes in question that we allege in our lawsuit must be thrown out,” Guiliani said.

“Pennsylvania Party Leadership votes are this week. I hope they pick very tough and smart fighters. We will WIN!!” Trump tweeted on Tuesday.

Dick Morris, the former Clinton advisor who is now an unofficial advisor to the Trump campaign, also appeared on Newsmax. “I think Wisconsin will be flipped for Trump and Georgia will be won by the president,” Morris claimed.

There is one thing that is certain, the election is not over until it is certified by all state electors on December 14. This gives the Trump campaign ample time to investigate the alleged cases of fraud and computer glitches in several key states. They have also filed many lawsuits like this very important one in Pennsylvania.

“The lawsuit is taking place in the United States District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania and alleges a ‘two-tiered’ voting system for the 2020 presidential election. According to the campaign, voters were held to different standards depending on if they decided to vote in-person or by mail,” Townhall reports.

Those who chose to vote in-person at the polls had to register to vote, have their signature compared to voter rolls, vote in a monitored polling place where authorized poll observers took place, and their votes were counted in a transparent and observed manner.

According to the campaign, the state’s roughly 2.65 million mail-in ballots “lacked all the hallmarks of transparency and verifiability” that in-person voters faced. In particular, Trump’s team took issue with the lack of voter identification and ballots being received up to three days after Election Day. Those ballots were allegedly counted “without any evidence of timely mailings, such as a postmark, and denying sufficient monitoring over the reviewing and counting of mail-in ballots.”

The lawsuit claims that Allegheny and Philadelphia Counties did not “engaging in an open and transparent process to give credibility to Pennsylvania’s brand-new voting system, the processes were hidden during the receipt, review, opening, and tabulation.”

The Trump campaign’s lawsuit accuses election officials in Allegheny and Philadelphia Counties – two Democratic strongholds – of pre-canvassing ahead of Election Day, meaning they contacted voters for things like missing signatures.

The ballots were allegedly allowed to be cured by voting provisionally on Election Day or canceling a previously mailed out ballot for a new one, despite state election rules not allowing ballot curing to take place.

“In other words, those counties provided their mail-in voters with the opportunity to cure mail-in and absentee ballot deficiencies, while Republican-heavy counties followed the law and did not provide a notice and cure process, disenfranchising those that themselves complied with the Election Code to case legal votes,” the lawsuit read.

Election officials are also accused of “mailing unsolicited mail-in ballots to voters despite the fact that they had not applied for a mail-in ballot for the General Election, thus resulting in voters who received two ballots. The offending counties also failed to undertake any effort to ensure destruction of the duplicate ballots.”

The other issue called into question whether or not ballots were received by the deadline because some ballots were allegedly “counted without any evidence of timely mailing, such as a postmark.”

The Trump campaign believes these alleged actions violate the Equal Protection Clause and Elections and Electors Clause. They are asking for an injunction that would require the defendants to verify and confirm all mail-in ballots that were counted.

The Democrats will likely not be too excited to “verify and confirm” those votes. Election fraud is serious and can result in jail time. That’s why Guiliani says those votes should be thrown out. Now, the president is suggesting we must wait and see how this process unfolds.

All Americans regardless of party affiliation should be extremely upset and want to see all recounts and lawsuits handled in favor of transparency. If we cannot be confident of our election integrity, then we become a banana republic. That’s what is at stake in this election.
