“Trump’s legal team scores small win, small losses in election fight”

Josh Gerstein for Politico:

President Donald Trump’s barrage of lawsuits related to the 2020 presidential election got off to a mixed start on Thursday, with his campaign winning closer access to ballot counting in Philadelphia but losing bids to invalidate a few dozen mail-in ballots in Georgia and for better access to counting in Michigan.

The initial flurry of suits did not appear capable of delivering a reelection victory to the president or even satisfying his repeated demands to stop the count. Instead, they seemed intended to create a cloud of legal uncertainty around the election and preserve a sense of viability around the campaign while Trump lawyers scramble for a strategy that could actually help him win.
