DETROIT – Only one day after Michigan reported a record 6,225 cases and Republican lawmakers issued a subpoena for election results, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer spoke with Local 4 News.
Both locally and nationally Republicans are calling for investigations into potential voter fraud without proof.
“I think it is time to embrace the will of the people. There has not been any evidence of anything that would undermine the validity of this election. And it is time to move forward,” said Whitmer in response to the subpoena for election records.
Whitmer also praised Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, Attorney General Dana Nessel, clerks across the state and the tens of thousands of Election Day volunteers.
Right after former vice president Joe Biden was announced as the projected winner of the White House race celebratory events took place in Detroit and around the country.
Still, supporters of President Donald Trump protested in Lansing yesterday energized by the president’s declaration that he will not concede.
Tempers flared in the crowd with some supporters unwilling to accept the election results.
Whitmer talked about the huge and troubling divide between supporters of Trump and Biden nationally.
