(WWJ) — The Michigan Republican Party is urging people to get involved by donating what they can and signing up to volunteer for a possible Presidential election vote recount.
However, state Republican Party Chairman Ronna Romney McDaniel says she is confident Donald Trump will still remain the winner.READ MORE: Chamber Of Commerce Asks To End Extra Unemployment Benefits
“It’s just an unfortunate turn of events that Jill Stein is mounting an effort when she has no credible case as to why a recount is needed,” McDaniel told WWJ Newsradio 950 on Saturday.
Michigan’s presidential election results are set to be certified by the Board of State Canvassers at a meeting on Monday. After the results are officially certified Stein — the Green Party candidate — would have until Wednesday to formally request a recount.READ MORE: AAA: Michigan's Average Gas Prices Rise To $2.95
“There’s been no evidence of any election issues, fraud or hacking,” McDaniel said. “I think this is a wasted effort, I think it’s unfortunate that she’s putting the voters of Michigan through this process, but I’m confident that in the end Donald Trump will remain the victor in Michigan.”
Stein announced last week she had raised enough funds to meet recount requirements in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. Earlier Saturday, the Hillary Clinton campaign stated it would support those efforts.MORE NEWS: Advocates Call On Sen. Gary Peters To Schedule Hearing For Washington, D.C. Statehood Bill
“Clearly they’re working together — the Clinton campaign doesn’t want to take the lead,” McDaniel said. “It’s unfortunate because it means that our process will be delayed, but in the end I have every confidence, first of all, in our election process here in Michigan and Secretary of State Ruth Johnson.”
