WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The campaign of President Donald Trump says it has filed a lawsuit in Georgia state court seeking to invalidate the presidential election results there - the latest in a series of legal challenges intended to reverse his loss to President-elect Joe Biden.

In a statement, the Trump administration has said that the lawsuit would include sworn statements from Georgia residents alleging fraud.

The Trump camp has filed a slew of lawsuits across the United States in a flailing bid to turn his defeat in the Nov. 3 election into a victory. Almost all of them have been rejected by the courts.

BioNTech lifts 2021 COVID-19 vaccine output target to 2 billion doses
