Buckle up. We have two runoffs in Georgia shaping up.

David Perdue has fallen to 50% of the vote in the race against Democrat Jon @ossoff and thousands of ballots from left-leaning counties remain to be counted, raising the prospects of a second Senate runoff in Georgia that could decide control of the chamber. #gapol #gasen

Police have now been called in to the Detroit counting room to try and protect the doors.

Here too. Can confirm. Police have now been called in to the Detroit counting room to try and protect the doors. Feels like the fake GOP “riots” in Florida in 2000.

In fact, the ⁦@MIGOP has so overwhelmed the Detroit vote counting room with “challengers” (most who are not lawyers), preventing actual Dem lawyers from actually getting in. Sure feels like a deliberate attempt to try to steal the election.

McCormack retains seat on Michigan Supreme Court with close race for court's open seat

LANSING — Michigan Supreme Court Chief Justice Bridget McCormack retained her seat in Tuesday's election, and the balance of power on the seven-member court hinged on results for the other contested seat.

McCormack, a Democratic nominee, was the top vote-getter among seven candidates with close to 1.9 million votes, with about 80% of precincts reporting.

Supreme Court justices appear on the nonpartisan portion of the election ballot, but are nominated at state party conventions. Republican nominees held a 4-3 edge on the court after the last election.

...

Grand Rapids attorney Elizabeth Welch, a Grand Rapids attorney and Democratic nominee, was in second place with 1.15 million votes, based on unofficial results. Mary Kelly, a former St. Clair County prosecutor and a Republican nominee, was in third place with 1.05 million votes.
