LAKE CHARLES, La. (KPLC) - Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry (R) on Tuesday said he supported the election complaint Texas has brought before the U.S. Supreme Court.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton (R) filed the lawsuit, saying election results in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Wisconsin and Michigan are unlawful. Read the full complaint HERE. The Supreme Court has called for a response to the complaint by Thursday afternoon.

On Tuesday, the Supreme Court without comment rejected a request by U.S. Rep. Mike Kelly (R-Pennsylvania) to reverse Pennsylvania’s certification of President-elect Joe Biden.

Landry is urging the Supreme Court to take up election cases.
