In a case brought by Rep. Mike Kelly (R-PA), Republicans seek to overturn the election results in Pennsylvania.


Republicans have been pushing the case hard, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) even publicly volunteered to argue the case before the U.S. Supreme Court.

And Republicans from outside Pennsylvania are urging the court to overturn the results, as was noted on Twitter by election law expert Rick Hasen.

The list includes Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) and Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH).

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) is also on the list.

There could be one problem with the scheme, which Sen. Cruz explained on Fox News on Monday night -- Supreme Court justices might not want to burn credibility by overturning the election based on unfounded conspiracy theories.
