Michigan, National Republicans Want State Certification Delayed

Election Challengers protest allegeded blockage from poll watching

The state Board of Canvassers is set to meet Monday where it could certify the results.

The statement came a day after President Trump met with Michigan Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey and House Speaker Lee Chatfield - both Republicans - in a suspected attempt by his campaign to overturn the state's election results.

The statement concluded that the process of the Board of State Canvassers should be "free from threats and intimidation", fraudulent behavior should be investigated and prosecuted to the full extent of the law, and "the candidates who win the most votes win elections and Michigan's electoral votes. These are simple truths that should provide confidence in our elections".

Trump has made no effort to hide that he believes votes from Detroit specifically should be discounted, tweeting this week with absolutely no evidence that "voter fraud in Detroit is rampant, and has been for many years!"

"Having lost the vote in MI and other states that are necessary for a majority of the electoral college, President Trump and the Donald J. Trump For President, Inc".

Republican U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, Michigan's current longest-serving member of Congress, told CNN on Sunday that "the voters spoke" and the state had no razor-thin presidential race.

Weekend Weather: First significant snow in the forecast
A winter weather parking ban is issued when Environment Canada forecasts 7 centimetres of snow or more in the Ottawa area. Environment Canada said the snow is a result of a "Colorado Low" that will make its way from OH and into the St.

Trump has closely kept an eye on developments in MI where his campaign and supporters have unsuccessfully filed unsuccessful lawsuits to try and reverse the election's outcome.

The Michigan Republican Party and the Republican National Committee on Saturday demanded that Michigan delay certifying the victory of presumptive President-elect Joseph R. Biden, saying the state should conduct an audit of votes in the Detroit area. All 83 counties now have certified their own election results.

The suit pinpoints this week's attempt by two Republican members of the Wayne County Board of Canvassers to block the certification of votes from Detroit on the basis that there were discrepancies on the poll books from those precincts, despite being willing to certify votes from other precincts in the county that are majority white and showed similar discrepancies.

Jeannette Bradshaw, a Democrat from Ortonville, chairs the board.

"The candidates who win the most votes win elections and Michigan's electoral votes", they said. She was appointed to the board in 2013.

Numerous actions can be taken if the canvassers fail to exercise their duty, according to Steven Liedel, former chief legal counsel to former Gov. Jennifer Granholm.
