It was reported this morning that Missouri is the latest state to join Texas in their lawsuit against Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin at the US Supreme Court.
Missouri Republican Attorney General Eric Schmitt said in a tweet late last night that “Election integrity is central to our republic. And I will defend it at every turn. As I have in other cases – I will help lead the effort in support of Texas’ #SCOTUS filing today. Missouri is in the fight.”

On Tuesday, Texas GOP Chairman Allen West told Steve Bannon on the War Room, “I think you’re going to see ten states sign on to this petition and lawsuit. I know as you said Louisiana just came on board.”
We reported yesterday that most of the south appeared poised to join in on the lawsuit including Arkansas, Alabama, Florida, Kentucky, Mississippi, South Carolina.
South Dakota led by Governor Kristi Noem also looks to be added to the list as well.
President Trump tweeted out this morning, “We will be INTERVENING in the Texas (plus many other states) case. This is the big one. Our Country needs a victory!”

The basis for the suit by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is that he believes the new voting processes in the swing states skewed the presidential election results and that electors should not be allowed to cast their votes for Joe Biden as a result.
