Pennsylvania officials will be able to certify election results showing Joe Biden’s victory in the state after a federal judge dismissed a lawsuit brought by Donald Trump’s campaign that sought to invalidate millions of postal votes.

US District Judge Matthew Brann said the Trump campaign presented “strained legal arguments without merit and speculative accusations … unsupported by evidence.”

It came as the president’s team demanded a recount in Georgia in the latest desperate attempt to overturn the election result, which Mr Biden won by more than six million votes.

Trump team calls for recount of presidential vote in Georgia

Georgia’s results showed Mr Biden defeating the president by 12,670 votes out of around five million votes – a margin of victory of 0.25%.

Although county election officials have previously conducted a full manual vote recount, it is not considered an official recount under the law.

Judge rejects Trump’s candidacy to stop certification of votes in Pennsylvania

Another attempt by Donald Trump to overturn the 2020 presidential election result failed after a judge in Pennsylvania dismissed a lawsuit by his campaign that sought to invalidate millions of postal votes.
