MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A federal judge has cast doubt on President Donald Trump’s lawsuit that seeks to overturn Joe Biden’s win in Wisconsin. U.S. District Judge Brett Ludwig said Thursday that siding with Trump would be “the most remarkable ruling in the history of this court or the federal judiciary.”
Trump is trying to overturn Biden’s win in Wisconsin with lawsuits in federal and state courts. In the state case, Trump wants to disqualify more than 221,000 ballots and in the federal case he wants to give the GOP-controlled Legislature the power to name Trump the winner. U.S. District Judge Brett Ludwig says he hopes to rule in the coming days.
