The State – 11/9/20

Lacie Hudson, Case deKoning

After days of vote tabulation from the start of Election Day, former Vice President Joe Biden and his running mate Kamala Harris are projected to win the presidency over President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence, and are set to begin their term at the White House on Jan. 20, 2021.

Biden won 281 total electoral votes, taking key battleground states throughout the vote counting period, including Michigan, Arizona and Nevada. Biden was declared the unofficial winner in Michigan on Wednesday, winning just under 2.8 million votes –   50.6% of the overall votes cast in the state.


Just as former Vice President Joe Biden secured the 270 electoral votes to become the 46th president of the United States, in Michigan, a joint state Senate and House oversight committee voted along party lines to subpoena documents relating to the 2020 election, investigating irregularities without evidence.

Chair of the committee, Republican Sen. Ed McBroom acknowledged that reports of irregularities were anecdotal, but insisted that a subpoena for documents would provide clarity because the public is at a “fever pitch” of interest.


A crowd of protesters gathered at the state Capitol Saturday afternoon, shortly after president-elect Joe Biden was projected to win the presidential race for the 2020 election.

The event titled “Stop the Steal” called on the public to take a stand against alleged voter fraud. Brandon Straka, an organizer of the event addressed the crowd stating there is no way to believe Joe Biden truly won this election.
