WASHINGTON — President-elect Joe Biden on Tuesday will formally introduce his picks for his economic policy team, including Janet Yellen for treasury secretary. If confirmed by the Senate, Yellen would be the first woman to lead the Treasury Department. In addition to other roles she held at the Federal Reserve, Yellen also served as chair of the Council of Economic Advisers under President Bill Clinton. Biden’s top choice for director of the National Economic Council is Brian Deese, a former adviser to President Barack Obama. The president-elect is expected to make the announcement later this week, when he will also name his Domestic Policy Council director, two sources familiar with the matter said Monday.

The advisers have all expressed support for government stimulus to maximize employment, reduce economic inequality and help women and minorities, who have been disproportionately hurt by the economic downturn. The transition to a Biden administration has proceeded despite Republican President Donald Trump’s false claims that he lost the election as a result of voter fraud. Rouse would be the first Black woman to lead the Council of Economic Advisers, which advises the president on economic policy; Tanden would be the first woman of color to run the OMB; and Yellen would be the first female Treasury secretary.

The U.S. Supreme Court seemed wary on Monday of approving President Donald Trump's plan to exclude undocumented immigrants from the census figures that are used to calculate each state's representation in Congress and share of billions of dollars from a host of federal programs. In July, Trump issued a memo that said people who are undocumented should not be included in the final count. Under his plan, the Census Bureau would report two sets of figures to the White House — one including everyone counted and another allowing him to leave out undocumented immigrants. But several members of the court, including some conservative justices, seemed to doubt the president had such a sweeping power to modify the census results. "Based on my understanding from the Census Bureau, there is a real prospect that the numbers will not affect the apportionment," he said.

The incoming administration has been hampered for weeks by Republican President Donald Trump, who has refused to concede to Biden, a Democrat. Biden named leading members of an economic team that will have to combat the crushing blows to workers and businesses from the coronavirus pandemic, which has killed more than 266,000 people in the United States in nine months. “They will be ready on day one to get to work for all Americans.”Biden was expected to formally introduce the new economic team members on Tuesday, the transition team said.

The advisers, several of whom would need to be approved by the U.S. Senate, come from liberal research organizations and worked in previous Democratic administrations. “They will be ready on day one to get to work for all Americans.”Biden is expected to formally introduce the new economic team members on Tuesday, the transition team said. Most of the battleground states that Biden won, including Pennsylvania and Georgia, previously certified their results. Together with the results from states where the outcome is not in dispute, Biden has secured enough votes in the state-by-state Electoral College to win the presidency.

The challengers to Trump’s July directive include various states led by New York, cities, counties and immigrant rights groups. House districts are based on a state’s population count in the decennial national census. If California loses House districts, that likely would mean Democrats lose House seats, benefiting Republicans. Federal courts in California and Maryland have reached the same conclusion in other cases though one court in Washington ruled for Trump. Critics said the question was intended to frighten immigrants from taking part in the population count and artificially reduce population numbers in heavily Democratic areas, also to benefit Republicans.

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said the state’s machine recount of the presidential race is on schedule to be completed by Wednesday, and pushed back against accusations of widespread fraud in the state’s Nov. 3 election results. Brian Kemp and Mr. Raffensperger certified Georgia’s Nov. 3 election results over a week ago, on Nov. 20, declaring President-elect Joe Biden the winner of the state with 16 Electoral College votes. Last week, the state’s 159 counties began a post-certification recount of the state’s 5 million presidential votes, which the Trump campaign requested. This recount is a rescanning of ballots through machines, according to state rules. “Once this recount is complete, everyone in Georgia will be able to have even more confidence in the results of our elections,” Mr. Raffensperger said in remarks at the state Capitol Monday.

Election workers count ballots at the Maricopa County Tabulation and Election Center (MCTEC), in Phoenix, Arizona, November 6, 2020. Arizona on Monday certified its presidential election results, delivering another win for President-elect Joe Biden in spite of efforts by allies of President Donald Trump to reverse the outcome of the race. The Grand Canyon State's certification will hand 11 Electoral College votes to Biden, who is projected to clinch 306 such votes nationwide, compared with 232 for Trump. Doug Ducey, a Republican, lauded his state's handling of the election, as well. Giuliani, who has been involved in multiple failed attempts to overturn swing states' election results through the courts, urged Republican state legislators at the hearing to defy Biden's popular vote win and select pro-Trump electors.

Arizona officially certified President-elect Joe Biden as the winner of the presidential election in the state, Secretary of State Katie Hobbs announced Monday. The certification came as President Donald Trump's legal team continues to push baseless claims of voter fraud at an event in the state. Arizona made President-elect Joe Biden's victory in the state official on Monday, marking the latest blow to President Donald Trump's efforts to overturn the results. Biden defeated Trump by 10,457 votes, according to the results certified by Hobbs, winning all 11 of the state's Electoral College votes. Since the election, Trump and his allies have pushed baseless accusations of voter fraud in the 2020 race.

After all the votes come in, election officials thoroughly canvass the votes cast before elected officials can be seated.

While many states allow campaigns to request recounts after certification, it's much harder for campaigns to legally challenge election results after states have certified those results.

In Wisconsin, Ms. Jacobs chose to certify Mr. Biden’s victory there one day before the state’s Dec. 1 deadline to do so. Ms. Jacobs, a Democrat from Milwaukee, said that certifying the result of the presidential election came at her discretion and that she expected the move to kick-start legal challenges from the Trump campaign. “The power to do this is vested solely in the chair,” Ms. Jacobs said in an interview on Monday. All states must exhaust legal challenges by Dec. 8. The Trump campaign has argued in its recount petition that all ballots cast at in-person absentee voting sites before Election Day should be disqualified.

Governor Asa Hutchinson of Arkansas is one of a few Republicans to refer to Biden as the president-elect. The words of President Trump are not quite as significant,” Hutchinson told “Fox News Sunday,” adding that he understood the legal reason Trump is not conceding. Biden won the presidential election with 306 Electoral College votes - many more than the 270 required - to Trump’s 232. In the latest legal blow to the Trump team, a federal appeals court on Friday rejected an attempt to block Biden from being declared the winner in Pennsylvania. A recount in Wisconsin’s largest county demanded and paid for by Trump’s election campaign ended on Friday with Biden gaining votes.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump on Sunday questioned whether the Supreme Court would ever hear a case airing his unproven allegations of widespread election fraud as senior U.S. Republicans said a transition to a Joe Biden presidency looked inevitable. “The problem is it’s hard to get it to the Supreme Court,” Trump said, without clarifying whether he thought the court would decline to hear an appeal or whether his campaign may not even make one. “On to SCOTUS!” Trump campaign attorney Jenna Ellis wrote on Twitter after the ruling, suggesting a plan to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court. Later, however, Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani reportedly told One America News Network that the legal team was still weighing which case might be appropriate to pursue at the top court. Biden won the presidential election with 306 Electoral College votes - many more than the 270 required - to Trump’s 232.
