Michiganders are reacting in very different ways to the announcement that former Vice President Joe Biden has been declared the projected winner of the 2020 presidential election.
Just before noon the Associated Press and other news outlets projected Biden would win the states of Pennsylvania and Nevada, giving the Democratic Party nominee enough electoral college votes to win the presidential race.
At a noon hour rally at the state capitol, hundreds of flag waving supporters of President Donald Trump remained defiant.
Republican-led House and Senate committees met today to vote themselves subpoena power to examine the conduct of the election. The vote by the joint House and Senate oversight committees fell along party lines.
The vote occurred at almost the same time as Democratic nominee Joe Biden was declared the projected winner of the presidential election.
Democratic state Representative Cynthia Johnson said the action is only meant to cast doubt in the results of a fair election.
The Associated Press declared Democrat Joe Biden the winner of his native Pennsylvania at 11:25 a.m. EST. The AP called the race for Biden, who held a 34,243-vote lead after it determined that the remaining ballots left to be counted would not allow Trump to catch up.
Updated November 7, 2020 at 11:38 a.m.: The Associated Press has called Pennsylvania for Joe Biden, giving him 284 electoral votes, naming him President-Elect. Many states are still tallying ballots. For more, head here.
