On Monday Michigan election officials certified former Vice President Joe Biden’s 154,000 votes, despite an ongoing battle with President Donald Trump whose legal team is still battling what they say is alleged fraud in the general election.
According to the Associated Press the Board of State Canvassers, which has two Republicans and two Democrats, confirmed the results on a 3-0 vote. There was one abstention.
It has been a tough fight in Michigan. GOP Senate candidate John James, who lost his fight for the Senate seat, had urged the panel to not vote for several weeks in an effort to audit the votes in Wayne County, a suburb of Detroit that it heavily Democratic.
