I may need to take back what I said about Rep. Kelly’s PA suit being the dumbest case I’ve ever seen filed on an emergency basis at the Supreme Court.
My view in brief: this is a press release masquerading as a lawsuit. Texas doesn’t have standing to raise these claims as it has no say over how other states choose electors; it could raise these issues in other cases and does not need to go straight to the Supreme Court; it waited too late to sue; the remedy Texas suggests of disenfranchising tens of millions of voters after the fact is unconstitutional; there’s no reason to believe the voting conducted in any of the states was done unconstitutionally; it’t too late for the Supreme Court to grant a remedy even if the claims were meritorious (they are not).
It’s almost impossible to describe how stupid the arguments in this thing are:

We know the election was fraudulent…because Joe Biden got more votes than Hillary Clinton. That’s the argument. Over to you, General:
I feel sorry for Texans that their tax dollars are being wasted on such a genuinely embarrassing lawsuit.
