"We are disappointed we did not at least get the opportunity to present our evidence at a hearing. Unfortunately the censorship continues," the statement said. "We hope that the Third Circuit will be as gracious as Judge Brann in deciding our appeal one way or the other as expeditiously as possible."Trump has repeatedly said he would go to the Supreme Court in his efforts to fight the election results, though he has not been clear about why or what legal basis there is to do so. But Business Insider's Jacob Shamsian reported some experts say the Supreme Court appears hesitant to get involved in election-related litigation.
Hours after the judge's decision, Sen. Pat Toomey became the latest in a growing number of prominent Republicans to acknowledge and congratulate Biden as president-elect.
"With today's decision by Judge Matthew Brann, a longtime conservative Republican whom I know to be a fair and unbiased jurist, to dismiss the Trump campaign's lawsuit, President Trump has exhausted all plausible legal options to challenge the result of the presidential race in Pennsylvania," Toomey said in a statement.
