Two weeks after Donald Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton, Michigan election officials finally were able to certify results and declare Trump the winner.
But it could mean chaos if Democrats decide to challenge it.
Here’s more from Washington Examiner:
Two weeks after Election Day, Donald Trump has won Michigan, the Detroit Free Press declared Wednesday night.
The Michigan secretary of state on Wednesday posted vote counts certified at the county level from the contest that was too close to call since people voted on Nov. 8, and showed President-elect Trump ahead of Democratic rival Hillary Clinton by 10,704 votes. That was less than his 13,107 vote lead that was initially recorded.
“Many people have asked about Michigan’s process for counting ballots and certifying election results. Please be aware that all 1,521 Michigan cities and townships completed ballot counting and reported unofficial results by the morning of Wednesday, Nov. 9,” according to a statement on the secretary of state’s website. “The county canvassing boards, as they do after every election, then began their work to review and certify the results from each precinct.”
Trump received a total of 2,279,543 votes, while Clinton got 2,268,839, according to the Michigan Board of State Canvassers’ unofficial count. Behind the two front-runners were Libertarian Gary Johnson at 172,136 votes and the Green Party’s Jill Stein at 51,463 votes.
But there are reports from inside the Hillary campaign that they will challenge the results. If this happens, it could send us into a constitutional crisis.
