Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer is condemning those who are objecting to the electoral college certification in Washington. Whitmer made the comments during a virtual news conference Wednesday. While efforts have been made to de-legitimize the results of the presidential election numbers in Michigan,

Whitmer blasted the notion of any wide spread fraudulent activity or conspiracy to give the state to President-Elect Joe Biden.

“Instead of accepting the will of the people, there are some Republicans in Washington and in Lansing, who have continued to deny reality, deny the facts, and deny basic math,” Whitmer said. “It gets worse; just yesterday 11 Republicans from the state senate, sent a letter to members of congress urging them to delay certification of this election without a shred of evidence…It is really difficult to articulate just how unprecedented, how dangerous, and outrageous this is. It’s shocking the conscious, and it undermines our faith in democracy.”

Both U.S. Reps. Jack Bergman, Tim Walberg, are among some of the Michigan lawmakers who said they would object to the electoral college certification. On Tuesday, Rep. Bill Huizenga, who represents Michgian’s 3rd Congressional district, said he would not object.
