UPDATE: The U.S. Supreme Court has dismissed the lawsuit. Previous story below:

INDIANAPOLIS – Five U.S. representatives from Indiana have joined on to a brief with the Supreme Court to support a lawsuit seeking to delay the certification of President-elect Joe Biden in some states.

The lawsuit seeks to invalidate the ballots of millions in Georgia, Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton filed the lawsuit this week, with President Donald Trump and more than 15 other states (including Indiana) joining. Late this week, more than 100 Republican U.S. House members also joined the lawsuit.

Those from Indiana include: Rep. Jim Baird, Rep. Jim Banks, Rep. Trey Hollingsworth, Rep. Greg Pence and Rep. Jackie Walorski.

The lawsuit argues that Texas voters were disenfranchised by weak voting laws in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin and Georgia. But officials in those states and even U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr have said there has been no widespread evidence of election fraud.
