KERN COUNTY, Calif.  — In Pennsylvania, the state's supreme court ruled to extend the mail-in ballot receipt deadline.

The decision allows ballots to be received up to three days following the election.

The Trump administration says the move was unconstitutional.

On Wednesday, Representative Kevin McCarthy held a press conference and seemed to address these concerns.

"What the president wants to make sure is that every legal vote is counted, that people vote up until election day, not the days after as others would have. That's what the president refers to. I don't think people should be able to vote today and I would think every other American would feel that exact same way. And that's exactly what the president was expressing."

Ballot counting could last until Nov. 6 under this ruling.

The house minority leader also said he is confident that president trump will have four more years in office.
