Although Republicans seek new ways to prevent Biden’s apparent victory in the presidential race, despite the lack of evidence, the pressure on the battlefield from state and local officials is increasing, and they have to accept the improper vote counting and Allegations of voter fraud.
In Michigan, Republican lawyers lobbied the Wayne County Canvassing Committee to consider evidence of alleged misconduct before proving a vote. In Pennsylvania, Republican lawmakers became the target of a social media campaign, demanding the appointment of voters who support Trump. In Georgia, the Republican Secretary of State defended the election and announced a manual review of the election results, even though the Republican senator in the state called on him to resign over the so-called issue.
