They said they would follow “normal” procedures when determining the winner of the presidential election.
Michigan Republicans who met with President Donald Trump at the White House said they had no information that could change the outcome of the state’s presidential election and that they would follow “normal” electoral procedures.
Michigan is one of the controversial states where Trump’s lawyers have filed lawsuits to challenge Joe Biden’s victory. Mike Shirkey, the Republican majority leader in the Michigan Senate, said: “We are not aware of information that could change the election results in Michigan.”
Shirkey and speaker of the state House of Representatives, Lee Chatfield, also warned that all election fraud suspicions would be thoroughly investigated.
According to Reuters sources, after a series of court defeats, the Trump team hopes to convince lawmakers in the Republican-controlled states to declare Trump the winner of the election.
Shirkey and Chatfield said they called on President Trump to provide more financial assistance to Michigan to fight the COVID-19 epidemic.
