Michigan US Senate candidate John James, who is currently trailing Democratic Senator Gary Peters in the 2020 election, is calling for an investigation into the votes.
The Associated Press called the Senate race Wednesday night for Democrat Gary Peters with a nearly 90,000 vote lead over James.
In a statement on Thursday, James said, “While Senator Peters is currently ahead, I am deeply concerned that millions of mixiganders may be dishonest by unscrupulous people who cheat.”
James also said he would accept the outcome and desire of the people, “but at the moment there is enough evidence to ensure that the elections were conducted in a transparent, legal and fair manner to ensure an investigation.”
The John James Campaign has not provided any evidence claiming fraud or evidence to support any investigation. It is also unclear what they are specifically hoping to investigate.
There is no evidence of any voter fraud or fraud involving Michigan’s 2020 election.

Meanwhile, Gary Peters has already conceded victory in the race, releasing a victory statement on Wednesday, “Michigan is my home, and being able to spend six more years for Michigan families in the US State is an indomitable honor. “
Peters also urged James to accept the result at a media event in West Michigan on Thursday morning.
