"The Michigan Senate commits to the selection of electors to the Electoral College that will be faithful to voting for the candidate with the most votes for President in Michigan as certified by Michigan election officials", the resolution read.
The president has baselessly cast doubt on the vote in the swing state of MI, which he lost to Mr Biden by approximately 150,000 votes and has waged a campaign to pressure Republicans in the state to back him in reversing the outcome.
Michigan Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey and Speaker of the House Lee Chatfield said they would be vigilant in making sure the process is fair but added they saw no evidence that was likely to give Trump a win in the state where Biden leads by more than 150,000 votes.
Such an event would be unprecedented in modern U.S. history.
"There will be no one from the campaign there, he routinely meets with lawmakers from all across the country", McEnany said.Читайте также: CDC: Sturgis Motorcycle Rally Linked to 86 COVID-19 Cases in Minnesota
Trump's last-minute White House invitation to the state lawmakers was the latest in what has become an unprecedented attack on US election results by a sitting president.
In Michigan, the Republican National Committee and the state Republican Party wrote to the state board of canvassers asking it to adjourn for 14 days to allow for an audit of ballots in Wayne County, which includes the majority-Black city of Detroit. That claim was not true, as Wayne County did certify Biden the victor earlier that day. The board members filed affidavits Wednesday seeking to "rescind" their votes to certify the election result.
Trump has made a series of unfounded claims about the election results in MI and other states where rules put in place by Republican legislatures ensured that mail-in ballots were counted after in-person votes.
Shirkey and Chatfield did not reveal whether they spoke to Trump about voting on electors that run counter to the state's vote, saying instead that they discussed federal funding for COVID-19. Following his diagnosis, he was eventually admitted to the hospital where he was there for a short amount of time, before returning to the White House. "These are simple truths that should provide confidence in our elections".При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
