December 12, 2020
WASHINGTON, D.C.— Today, the Democratic Attorneys General Association (DAGA) Co-Chairs Massachusetts AG Maura Healey and Nevada AG Aaron Ford released the following statement in response to the United States Supreme Court rejecting the lawsuit brought by Texas AG Ken Paxton in an effort to overturn the results of the presidential election in four battleground states that voted for President-elect Joe Biden: Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
Statement from Massachusetts AG Maura Healey and Nevada AG Aaron Ford, Co-Chairs of the Democratic Attorneys General Association
“The Supreme Court correctly handed Donald Trump and his allies like Texas AG Ken Paxton another defeat today in their continued effort to overturn the will of the American people. The Court’s decision is an important reminder that we are a nation of laws—and in America, our laws are designed to protect the will of the people. Democratic Attorneys General will never waiver in fighting against anti-democratic efforts that threaten to undermine our free and fair elections.”
“It’s long past time our leaders respect the will of the American voter and move forward together to confront the challenges that lie ahead for our families and communities.”
