After a statement issued by President Trump’s 2020 campaign manager hinting at the possibility of a lawsuit being filed in Michigan challenging the state’s ballot-counting process, Attorney General Dana Nessel’s Press Secretary Ryan Jarvi issued the following response:
“Michigan’s elections have been conducted transparently, with access provided for both political parties and the public, and using a robust system of checks and balances to ensure that all ballots are counted fairly and accurately.
“At this time our department has not been notified by the Court of Claims about this lawsuit and when we are served, we will review it and respond accordingly.”
“Michigan will always continue to protect the rights of all voters to have their ballots counted.”
Biden is leading the Electoral College 238-213 and the race is still too close to call in Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, North Carolina and Pennsylvania.
