U.S. Rep. Tom Emmer

U.S. Rep. Tom Emmer is among a large group of House Republicans formally supporting a dubious last-ditch bid to get the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn the presidential election.

In all, 106 House Republicans signed onto an amicus brief in support of a suit filed last week by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton. It attempts to invalidate President-elect Joe Biden's 62 Electoral College votes in four swing states.

Emmer was the only Minnesota Republican to sign on. In a statement Thursday, he said the amicus brief "asserts the democratic right of state legislatures to make appointments to the Electoral College was violated in several states."
