"The numbers reflect the verdict of the people, not a decision by tok he secretary of state's office or of courts or of either campaign".

Reportedly, there was consensus among both Republicans and Democrats on the need to fire Brady, despite the belief that the error was not made purposefully.

Trump invited a delegation of Michigan Republican lawmakers to meet with him at the White House on Friday, as that state is on the verge of formally certifying that President-elect Joe Biden won more votes. "Fraudelent people take advantage of these types of things" says Rep. Moore.

The campaign's lawsuit now argues that the election violated the equal protection clause of the Constitution because some counties allowed voters whose mail-in ballots had deficiencies, such as a missing signature or privacy envelope, to "cure" those problems. The tally resulted from an audit required by a new state law and wasn't in response to any suspected problems with the state's results or an official recount request.

The findings followed the discovery of more than 2,600 untallied ballots in Floyd County, forcing election workers to rescan more than 8,000 ballots, with Floyd County Republican Party chair Luke Martin referring to the incident as a "concerning" mishap that "doesn't appear to be a widespread issue". The President's efforts to pressure local leaders, which earned sharp criticism even from some Republicans, come as his legal team's options to challenge election results in states he lost are rapidly evaporating and as states move to certify their election results.

The increasingly desperate and erratic moves by the president and his allies have no reasonable chance of changing the outcome of the 2020 election, in which Biden has now received more votes than any other presidential candidate in history and has clinched the 270 Electoral College votes needed to win.

"We did not establish a representative democracy to ask courts to declare who wins our elections", the NAACP-Pennsylvania State Conference, Black Political Empowerment Project, Common Cause of Pennsylvania and League of Women Voters of Pennsylvania argued. Nearly exactly the same pattern. Biden on November 7 based on projected vote totals.

Mr. Biden won Georgia by a little more than 12,000 votes, or about 0.2 percentage points.

Trump earlier this week invited MI legislators to the White House in an attempt to stop Biden from winning the Electoral College. "Working as an engineer throughout my life, I live by the motto that numbers don't lie", he said, adding that the numbers presented today were correct.

Meanwhile, two GOP state lawmakers from MI met with the president at the White House on Friday to discuss the campaign's legal dispute over its election process. "However, it is quite honestly hard to believe that during the audit thousands of uncounted ballots were found weeks after a razor-thin outcome in a presidential election". "As governor, I have a solemn responsibility to follow the law and that is what I will continue to do".

Mr. Raffensperger's office certified the state's election results earlier Friday after an unprecedented statewide hand recount, or audit.

"Their duties are to receive the canvass and certify the canvass, that's it", said John Pirich, a former assistant attorney general who teaches at Michigan State University Law School. The elder Giuliani and other Trump campaign lawyers spoke without masks from an indoor podium, to an audience of dozens.
