PHILADELPHIA (AP) — President Donald Trump's campaign has filed plenty of lawsuits in six states as he tries to upend an election he lost to Democrat Joe Biden.

The strategy may have played well in front of TV cameras, but it's proved a disaster in court, where judges uniformly have rejected claims of vote fraud.

The latest case ended Saturday when a federal judge in Pennsylvania said Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani presented only "speculative accusations" and no proof of rampant corruption in the vote.

A law school professor says the suits threaten the future of elections because so many Americans believe the claims being made by Trump's team.
