Joe Biden’s campaign is moving quickly to raise roughly $30 million in order to fight President Trump’s legal action, claiming to “re-launch” its “fight fund,” according to Fox News.
A campaign email revealed that “Donald Trump is doubling down on lawsuits.”
The Biden campaign argued in the email, “litigation is expensive, but we need to be prepared to fight these lawsuits regardless and ensure Trump doesn’t win them just because we don’t have the funds to fight back.”
“Which is why today we are re-launching our Biden Fight Fund, and why we need your help to fill it with $30 million in the coming days and weeks.”
The campaign continued to note that it “wouldn’t be asking if we didn’t truly need $30 million to be able to fund the legal work ahead — we can’t run out of resources now, which is why we need to fill this fund as soon as we can.”

As late as Tuesday evening, the campaign was expected to file a lawsuit blocking Michigan from certifying its election results, citing a need to verify that the ballots were “tabulated in accordance with the law.”
Tuesday’s email from the Biden campaign came hours after he shrugged off President Trump’s frefusal to accept the election outcome as “inconsequential,” even as Democrats elsewhere warned that the Republican president’s actions were dangerous.
