Trump campaign enjoys minor victory in Pennsylvania lawsuit over voter ID


WASHINGTON — President Trump’s re-election campaign was handed a minor legal victory on Thursday when a Pennsylvania judge ruled that a small number of ballots be tossed, from people who did not provide ID by a Monday deadline. The Pennsylvania appellate court ruling bars counties from including in their final tally mail-in ballots from people who failed to validate their identification against state records by Nov. 9. It comes as Trump refuses to concede the election, claiming widespread fraud, and his campaign files lawsuits challenging the vote count in swing states. Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar tried to extend that deadline to Thursday, but Commonwealth Court President Judge Mary Hannah Leavitt ruled she had no authority to do so.
