NOW: Trump campaign files lawsuit in Wisconsin challenging election results

MADISON, Wis. (AP/CBS 58) -- President Donald Trump has filed a lawsuit in Wisconsin seeking to disqualify hundreds of thousands of ballots in a longshot attempt to overturn Democrat Joe Biden’s win in the battleground state he lost by nearly 20,700 votes.

Trump filed the suit with the Wisconsin Supreme Court on Tuesday, Dec. 1.

It came a day after Democratic Gov. Tony Evers and the head of the Wisconsin Elections Commission certified Biden as the winner of the state’s 10 Electoral College votes.

The state's highest court also is considering whether to hear two other lawsuits filed by conservatives seeking to invalidate ballots.
