Michigan Voters Are Ready To Move Forward

With electoral votes cast, it’s time to leave the conspiracy theories behind

MICHIGAN – After more than a month of fearmongering and conspiracy theories from the Trump camp Michigan Republicans, Michigan’s electoral votes have finally been cast for President-Elect Joe Biden. Now, Michigan voters are ready to celebrate progress and leave the 2020 election behind.

“Despite Michigan Republicans’ best efforts to sow doubt and undermine the legitimacy of our election system, the will of the people has been heard today,” said Lonnie Scott, executive director of Progress Michigan. “We will not forget the way Republican leaders have damaged public trust in elections, failed to condemn violence and encouraged the spread of baseless conspiracy theories that endanger our public officials and democracy. But today is a day to celebrate. Michigan voters turned out in record numbers to stand up for our values and move our state toward a brighter future. With this election in the rearview mirror, we’re ready to continue the fight for solutions to the pressing issues facing us, including a COVID-19 relief package that actually helps essential workers and families who are in desperate need.”
