Rudy Giuliani, the Trump campaign's lead attorney, announced Tuesday that the campaign filed a petition for a Writ of Certiorari with the US Supreme Court.
The filing "seeks expedited consideration before the January 6 Congressional review of the Electoral College votes."
On Dec. 14, the Wisconsin Supreme Court rejected President Trump's lawsuit to toss out 220,000 votes in Milwaukee and Dane counties.
The decision came about an hour before Wisconsin's Electoral College officially assigned its 10 votes to President-elect Joe Biden.
