The Michigan Democratic Party released the following statement from Chair Lavora Barnes on the Court of Claims denying injunctive relief for the Trump campaign in the AV ballot challenge.
“We are pleased to see that the Michigan Court of Claims has denied the Trump campaign’s challenge to the AV ballot counting process. This was simply a political stunt meant to distract from the legitimate outcome of the election. Michiganders sent a clear message to this president and no lawsuit or tweet can change the results.
We are thankful for all of the election workers, the local clerks, and the Secretary of State for conducting a free and fair election in Michigan. In the era of COVID-19, this was not an easy task. Their commitment to ensuring that every voter could safely cast their ballot and be guaranteed it would be counted is to be commended.”
