McDaniel to Democrats: “Every Single Democrat Should Accept the Results of the Election.”
LANSING, Mich., Nov. 29, 2016 – Michigan Republican Chairman Ronna Romney McDaniel blasted the suggested Green Party recount and demanded that every Democrat publicly accept the results of the election in Michigan and oppose a recount. President-Elect Donald J. Trump won Michigan on November 8, 2016 by 10,704 votes. There is no precedent for a statewide recount in Michigan overturning 1,000 votes—much less 10,000 votes.
“Democrats need to publicly accept the results of this election. Donald Trump won Michigan by a significant margin and Green Party officials and Democrats admit there is no fraud or impropriety and this will not change the results,” McDaniel said. “The unwillingness to accept the outcome undermines the will of Michigan voters and the election process. It’s nothing more than a fundraising scam. I am calling on every Democrat elected official to oppose this wasteful, insulting recount,” continued McDaniel.
Democrat attorney Mark Brewer, who was hired by the Stein campaign to run the Michigan recount, admitted to media that the recount was not about changing the election results. “The argument that this ensures the integrity of the election is bogus,” McDaniel said. “This frivolous recount undermines the election process and Democrats should demand that the Stein campaign drop this sham immediately.”
