Supreme Court defeat made Republicans speechless, US Elections 2020

With the defeat in the Supreme Court, the Republicans across the country seemed to be in trouble finding the right words. The bellicose statements from some quarters that had characterized the postelection period, the claims of switched and missing votes, a “rigged” election and even threats of secession from Texas Republicans after the ruling on Friday, had paved way to something resembling muted resignation and the acceptance of an unavoidable existing reality. 

Right from social media Platforms including Twitter, many Republicans are silent including Trump who vowed, “WE HAVE JUST BEGUN TO FIGHT!!” in a tweet before the Supreme Court Verdict. The case filed by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, none of the 17 Republican attorneys general who had endorsed the case agreed to be interviewed by a famous news agency. Paxton, who had issued a statement calling the decision “unfortunate,” did not respond to a request for comment. 

Few other attorneys issued statements most likely meaning all legal avenues had been exhausted in efforts to overturn the election results.  “The Supreme Court has ruled. The Electoral College is going to meet Monday. We’ve got to accept the results,” said Mike Hunter, the Oklahoma attorney general. Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson, a Republican said there was no viable path forward for Trump.
