The Nevada lawsuit matches legal action the Trump campaign is launching in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Georgia as Biden approaches the 270 electoral votes needed to win the presidency.
"STOP THE COUNT!," the president tweeted on Thursday.
STOP THE COUNT!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 5, 2020
If state officials stop counting now and the election were called on the current tallies - Biden would win. The president needs to make up vote gaps in Arizona and Nevada in order to win the election - in other words, he needs officials there to keep counting the ballots.
As we reported earlier, according to the CNN calculations, Biden has 50.5% of votes and Trump has 48%.
For an overall victory in the elections, Biden must win another state - Nevada (6 electoral votes) or Pennsylvania (20 electoral votes). It became known yesterday that Biden confidently bypassed Trump in Michigan, gaining 50.5% of votes. This state gives 16 electoral votes.
