Echoing President Donald Trump’s baseless claims of widespread voter fraud in Michigan, the Republican National Committee and the Michigan Republican Party are trying to stall the certification of the state’s election outcomes.

RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel and Michigan Republican Party Chairwoman Laura Cox requested Michigan’s Board of State Canvassers in a letter on Saturday to delay certification of the state’s election outcomes for 2 weeks to “allow for a full audit and investigation” into alleged voting “anomalies and irregularities.”
