The Supreme Court dealt a blow to Republicans in battleground states Pennsylvania and North Carolina in a pair of emergency election appeals Wednesday night.
In a victory for Republicans Monday, the Supreme Court rejected a Democratic request to count mail-in ballots received after Election Day in Wisconsin.
In a major election victory for Democrats, a short-handed and evenly divided Supreme Court refused to disturb a state court order allowing officials in Pennsylvania to count tardy mail-in ballots Monday night, turning down a Republican request to impose an Election Day deadline.
While Democrats have implied their intention to pack the Supreme Court for weeks, Sen. Chris Coons (D., Del.) on Sunday explicitly said he was “open” to adding justices to the High Court.
