(Right Country) – Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel has called on the Michigan Board of State Canvassers to delay certifying the state’s election results on Saturday.
This comes as the Trump campaign legal team engages in a number of legal skirmishes around the country challenging the outcome of the presidental election in various states.
Michigan is a state that reportedly went for Biden, yet a number of concerning so-called “irregularities” in the state has caught the attention of the RNC.
McDaniel, herself a native of Michigan, issued a letter cosigned by Michigan’s GOP Chairwoman, Laura Cox.
The leaders called on the board to delay the certification by 14 days to allow for a complete audit and probe into “numerical anomalies and credible reports of procedural irregularities,” WND reports.
“To simply gloss over these irregularities now without a thorough audit would only foster feelings of distrust among Michigan’s electorate,” the letter stated.
The irregularities we have seen in Michigan cannot simply be ignored away or brushed under the rug.
They must be confronted and thoroughly examined. @MIGOPChair and I are demanding a full and transparent audit in Wayne County!

WND notes that Republicans are specifically objecting to what they say may be an errant vote total due to the flood of mail-in ballots.
McDaniel has also criticized the prevention of Republican poll watchers from being able to observe the ballots being tallied.
“Part of being able to observe is actually seeing the ballots,” she explained earlier this month, as NPR reported.
Currently, Michigan’s results show that former Vice President Joe Biden supposedly beat out President Donald Trump in the state that the then-political newcomer won in 2016 against Hillary Clinton.
WND notes that “Trump failed to convince Michigan lawmakers to appoint electors in his favor or otherwise change the state’s results after they said that they would abide by the state’s certification laws.”
