President Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani will now officially be representing the campaign in its election lawsuit in Pennsylvania.

U.S. District Judge Matthew Brann, an Obama appointee, approved Giuliani’s application on Tuesday to represent the president’s campaign just before the first hearing in the case against Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar was set to begin. The former New York City mayor also indicated Tuesday that the president’s legal team is now looking at two established vehicles “ready to go” to the Supreme Court.

Giuliani along with Pennsylvania attorney Marc Scaringi stepped in, in Pennsylvania after the campaign’s other legal team in the case withdrew on Monday.

He explained to Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo Tuesday morning that the day’s scheduled hearing was “a preliminary motion to dismiss the case, on technical legal grounds” and that they are “prepared to call witnesses” as they argue that about 700,000 ballots were counted “surreptitiously.”

“Today is to really argue the legal part of the case and frankly, this is a case that we would like to see get to Supreme Court, so, you know, we are prepared in some of these cases to lose and to appeal, and to get to the Supreme Court,” Giuliani said on “Mornings with Maria.”

“In some cases you win, some cases you lose. The most important thing is, this will be our first established vehicle on our way to the Supreme Court. Or I should say exactly, the second. The one in Michigan, even though the certification went ahead, that case is also another vehicle to go to the Supreme Court, so now we have two. Shortly we will have Wisconsin, and soon Georgia, then we will have three more right after that,” he explained.

Giuliani called out the “horrendous fraud” which he said spans the country but is “isolated to Democrat cities.”

Judge Brann, who approved Giuliani being added to the Pennsylvania case, reportedly told both sides to be “prepared for argument and questioning” at the courthouse.

Trump supporters apparently across the street from the courthouse broke out into chants of “Rudy! Rudy! Rudy!” when he arrived.

Politico’s Josh Gerstein and others began reporting on the courtroom happenings on Twitter.

Boockvar, a Democrat, has asked to have the lawsuit thrown out.
