Losing Senate Candidate Wants Delay In Certifying MI

The Detroit Free Press reports:

John James, the Republican candidate for a U.S. Senate in the Nov. 3 election, asked the Board of State Canvassers Friday to delay its certification of Michigan’s statewide election results.

The four-member board, composed of two Republicans and two Democrats, is scheduled to meet Monday to certify the results, amid ongoing efforts by Republican Donald Trump to overturn results that show Democratic President-Elect Joe Biden defeating him in Michigan by about 154,000 votes.

In a letter to the board, James asked for a two-week delay “to fully audit the election results.” He included a lengthy letter from his attorneys and affidavits or declarations from three poll challengers and voters.

James lost by 92,000 votes and refuses to concede.
