WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The campaign of President Donald Trump has filed a lawsuit in Michigan to stop the counting of ballots in the presidential election.
“We have filed suit today in the Michigan Court of Claims to halt counting until meaningful access has been granted. We also demand to review those ballots which were opened and counted while we did not have meaningful access,” the campaign said in a statement.
There is no clear presidential winner in the swing state, which has 16 electoral votes, according to Edison Research. Republican Trump’s opponent, Democrat Joe Biden, has a razor-thin margin in Michigan, where 92% of the expected vote is in.
Trump’s campaign is also demanding a recount in Wisconsin, another state where he is neck and neck with Biden.
