Release Date: Dec 11, 2020

TOPEKA – (December 11, 2020) – Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt issued the following statement on today’s decision by the U.S. Supreme Court not to hear a lawsuit brought by Texas challenging presidential election procedures in Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin:

“As I said Wednesday, Kansas filed a brief in this case, as we have in others, seeking an answer to an important and potentially recurring federal constitutional question involving the role of states in federal elections. My office also received more than 15,000 calls and emails urging us to ask the Supreme Court to hear the Texas arguments. Today the Supreme Court decided not to become involved in the 2020 election, and the Court’s decision means it is time to put this election behind us.”
