The Supreme Court has rejected a lawsuit that sought to overturn the results of the 2020 election.

All three Minnesota Republican congressmen -- Tom Emmer, Pete Stauber and Jim Hagedorn -- signed onto the last-ditch attempt.

The lawsuit, filed by the Texas attorney general, sought to invalidate millions of ballots from Michigan, Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin -- four key battleground states President Donald Trump lost to President-elect Joe Biden.

The lawsuit alleged the states used the pandemic to make unlawful changes to their election laws. However, multiple other states made similar changes and are not listed in the lawsuit.

President Donald Trump has lost dozens of legal rulings across several states after making unfounded claims of fraud.

The Department of Homeland Security has called the 2020 election the "most secure" in history and stated, "There is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised."

Emmer was listed among 106 House Republicans when the amicus brief was filed Thursday. On Twitter Friday morning, Stauber confirmed he joined an amicus brief in support of the lawsuit filed Thursday, but said due to a clerical error his name was not included on the list of signers. Friday afternoon, Hagedorn announced he signed as well. Now, at least 126 House Republicans have signed the amicus brief.

In a statement, Hagedorn said the GOP members are asking the Supreme Court to "address the American people’s serious concerns about the constitutionality of various state elections and integrity of the 2020 presidential election."

A coalition of attorneys general, including Minnesota's Keith Ellison, have signed an amicus brief calling for the Supreme Court to reject the lawsuit. Ellison and the other attorneys general say it would disenfranchise voters and strip states of their right to oversee their own elections.

"The people of America — including the people of Minnesota and these four other states — have spoken loud and clear: they have elected Joe Biden president, period," Ellison said in a statement Thursday.

Biden won 306 electoral votes to Trump's 232. Biden won Minnesota by 231,000 votes, or 7 percentage points.

The Electoral College is set to meet Monday.
