Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, publicly urged the U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday to hear the expedited appeal of a case challenging the election results in Pennsylvania, saying the matter “raises serious legal issues.”

Cruz, the longest serving solicitor general in the history of Texas and a former law professor at the University of Texas Law School in Austin, is the first U.S. senator to publicly support the appeal, filed by Rep. Mike Kelly, R-Pa.

“Hearing this case now – on an emergency expedited basis – would be an important step in helping rebuild confidence in the integrity of our democratic system,” Cruz said in statement that also noted a Reuters/Ipsos poll found 39% of Americans believed the election was “rigged.”

Kelly’s appeal argues the Pennsylvania legislature passed legislation greatly expanding the use of absentee voting, making it a “no-excuse” mail-in election and contradicting the state’s Constitution. It further derides the Pennsylvania Supreme Court for dismissing Kelly’s lawsuit for “laches,” a legal term for a procedural issue saying the case was brought too late.
