PA Judge Rules GOP Lawsuit Has “Established A Likelihood to Succeed”

2020 has been the most chaotic and uncertain year of most of our lives, and the presidential election has been just as crazy.

The situation in Pennsylvania just keeps going deeper, after a PA judge ruled in favor of President Donald Trump, by halting the State from certifying the election.

Joe Biden and the Democrats were not happy with Judge Patricia A. McCullough, who made the ruling on Friday.

According to Judge McCullough, “petitioners appear to have established a likelihood to succeed” with their lawsuit.

The judge is already being targeted by the media for her ruling.

The Register-Herald has more on Judge Patricia A. McCullough’s filing on Friday:

A Pennsylvania judge who tried to halt additional steps needed to certify the state’s 2020 election results said the Pennsylvania legislature’s expansion of mail-in voting, enacted over a year earlier, was likely illegal.

Commonwealth Court Judge Patricia McCullough’s Nov. 25 order was blocked by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court while it considers the case, filed by state Republicans led by U.S. Representative Mike Kelly, on an expedited basis.

The case is unrelated to one brought by President Donald Trump’s campaign, rejected by a federal appeals court on Friday, that sought to undo Pennsylvania’s certification of President-elect Joe Biden’s victory in the Keystone State.

McCullough’s opinion, posted Friday night, doesn’t add anything to the GOP-brought case as a practical matter, but provides the judge’s reasoning for having ordered a temporary delay.

Her ruling has been one of the few wins for Republicans and the Trump campaign in a flurry of litigation across several battleground states following the Nov. 3 election.
