Judge Goldsmith Lifts TRO

LANSING, Mich., Dec. 7, 2016 – Michigan Republican Party Chairman Ronna Romney McDaniel praised a federal decision lifting the Temporary Restraining Order from the Michigan Recount. The federal decision coupled with the Michigan Court of Appeals decision and the Board of Canvassers directive to the Michigan Elections Director to end the 1% recount makes this recount officially over.

Michigan Republican Party Chairman Ronna Romney McDaniel issued the following statement:

“This is a victory for the taxpayers and voters of Michigan who can be assured that their vote will count when the state’s electors meet on December 19th. The courts have affirmed the stance the campaign has maintained from day one: Jill Stein, who received only 1.07% of the vote in Michigan, is not legally entitled to hijack the will of voters and drag them into an arduous and expensive publicity stunt. Jill Stein’s 1% temper tantrum cost Michigan taxpayers millions of dollars and would have cost them additional millions of dollars if not for the actions of President-Elect Trump, the Michigan Republican Party, and Attorney General Bill Schuette.”


Recount Alert: Please Volunteer

From the Michigan Republican Party:

For weeks during the campaign, democrats and the media railed against Donald Trump for his statements about potentially not accepting the results of the election.

Yesterday, the Michigan Board of Canvassers certified the election results from November 8, 2016 declaring Donald J. Trump officially the winner of the Presidential election in Michigan by a margin of 10,704 votes. Within moments of the news, Former Michigan Democratic Party Chair, attorney Mark Brewer, said Green Party candidate Jill Stein plans to officially request a recount in Michigan on Wednesday. Jill Stein, a former Democrat, can’t seem to come to grips with the fact that Hillary Clinton lost. And guess who has agreed to help review the recount? Hillary Clinton’s campaign!

We need your help to defend President-Elect Trump’s Victory.

Help us to supply and train volunteers to oversee the recount, and ensure the integrity of our election system.

Election Results are in. But you already knew that!

Congratulations to all of the candidates running across the board and congratulations to our Countywide-elects and President-Elect Donald J. Trump!

Macomb County is pleased to have three new members at the county level including:

Candice Miller – Public Works Commissioner
Larry Rocca – Treasurer
Karen Spranger – Clerk/Register of Deeds

As everyone knows by now, Donald J. Trump is now the President Elect and an enthusiastic crowd cheered on through the night at the Macomb County Victory Center as each of the states were called and the electoral vote count increased towards the 270 mark. When it was realized that Michigan was going to go RED for the first time in 28 years and would  be key in taking us over the top, there were some very strong feelings of ex-HILLARY-ation!

As the tally updates became available for our local and state races we saw that some were lost but that many were won! Congratulations to everyone for participating!

You can check out the detailed election results from the links that follow. I have also included links to our neighboring counties for your convenience should you be interested in any of those races.

In the meantime, we will have a lot of work to do going forward to support and enact positive changes. I look forward to standing beside you all as we push forward Republican values and educate our friends, family and fellow citizens on why those principles matter.

Please note these results are unofficial at the time this article was written
