Republican candidate for Michigan’s Senate seat John James will not concede the election to incumbent Democratic Sen. Gary Peters despite Peters being declared the winner.
“This campaign is not about me, it never has been. It’s about the People of Michigan. Every vote must count, and elections must be fair and honest,” James said in an official statement.
“While Senator Peters is currently ahead, I have deep concerns that millions of Michiganders may have been disenfranchised by a dishonest few who cheat. When this process is complete, I will of course accept the results and the will of the people, but at this time there is enough credible evidence to warrant an investigation to ensure that elections were conducted in a transparent, legal and fair manner.”
