Following reports that Republican leaders from the Michigan state legislature would fly to Washington tomorrow (FRI) to meet with President Donald Trump, Governor Gretchen Whitmer implored them to put country over party. 

President Trump has refused to concede while continuing to make unsupported claims about widespread fraud, and his campaign has lost most of their legal challenges.

On Thursday, the Detroit News reported Republican legislators Mike Shirkey and Lee Chatfield will travel to Washington to meet with the president.

In a press conference, Governor Gretchen Whitmer said no meeting in the world can overturn the popular vote.

“I implore people to put country over party, respect the law, and see through that the will of the people is reflected in our electors and not play games with this fundamental part of our democracy,” said Whitmer.

With results from all 83 of Michigan’s counties tallied, Joe Biden has more than 150,000 votes than the president.
