The Republican majority leader of the Pennsylvania Senate, Kim Ward, fears her life would be in danger if she were to reject President Donald Trump’s efforts to overturn the state’s election results.
The New York Times noted the Pennsylvania General Assembly penned a letter last week calling on the Pennsylvania congressional delegation to “object, and vote to sustain such objection, to the Electoral College votes received from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania during the Joint Session of Congress on January 6, 2021.”
When asked if Ward would have signed it, she said, “If I would say to you, ‘I don’t want to do it,’ I’d get my house bombed tonight.”
Trump has filed several lawsuits to challenge election results.
Biden defeated Trump in Pennsylvania by 80,000 votes.
The Supreme Court of Nevada declined Trump’s appeal to overturn the state’s election results, as IJR previously reported.
On Wednesday, the president and 17 other states expressed support for a Texas lawsuit urging the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn election results in four states, including, Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.
The president asked the court to allow him to become a plaintiff in the lawsuit.
“This is the big one. Our Country needs a victory!” Trump wrote on Twitter.
Many states joined Texas including Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, and West Virginia.
Trump has pushed baseless allegations of widespread voter fraud since the election.
