MADISON, Wis. (AP) — President Donald Trump‘s campaign has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to take a lawsuit challenging election results in swing state Wisconsin.

The campaign had asked the Wisconsin Supreme Court to disqualify more than 221,000 ballots in Dane and Milwaukee counties, the state’s two most heavily Democratic counties.

Trump lost Wisconsin to Democrat Joe Biden by about 21,000 votes.

The state Supreme Court rejected the case.

The Trump campaign asked the U.S. Supreme Court late Tuesday evening to take the case, declare that Wisconsin’s election failed and allow the Republican-controlled Legislature to appoint the state’s electors.

Trump’s campaign filed a similar request earlier this month over Pennsylvania’s result.
