U.S. judge dismisses Trump lawsuit challenging Pennsylvania mail-in votes

    Nov 21 (Reuters) - A federal judge on Saturday dismissed a lawsuit filed by President Donald Trump's campaign that sought to throw out millions of mail-in votes in Pennsylvania.

    The ruling handed down by Matthew Brann, a judge for the middle district of Pennsylvania, was the latest blow to Trump's flailing efforts to overturn the Nov. 3 election, which he lost to Democratic President-elect Joe Biden.

    Brann described the case as "strained legal arguments without merit and speculative accusations." (Reporting by Raphael Satter; Editing by Daniel Wallis)
