FLINT—Congressman Dan Kildee (MI-05), Chief Deputy Whip of the House Democratic Caucus, issued the following statement today after Michigan’s 16 electors cast their ballots for President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris during the electoral college meeting at the Michigan State Capitol:

“I thank Michigan’s electors for honoring the will of the Michigan voters and casting their votes for President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris. Despite continued attempts by the President and his Republican enablers to spread conspiracy theories and overturn the election, today’s actions make clear that the will of the people will not be subverted. This election is over, and President-elect Joe Biden won our state by over 150,000 votes––14 times Donald Trump’s 2016 margin. Americans must come together to support our new president and unite to defeat the coronavirus.
