President Trump is not-so-slowly running through the list of ways in which he can find himself remaining in the White House after January 20th, as his legal teams continue to face hardships out on the road.
In Pennsylvania, a number of the President’s lawsuits have already been dismissed, and a near-full revamp of his legal team in the Keystone State seems to indicate that things aren’t going as swimmingly as originally planned.
But there is one last hope for President Trump in that state and local officials could stymy the entire electoral process by refusing to certify the results.
And that is precisely what is happening in Detroit.
Officials in Wayne County, Michigan, which contains the city of Detroit, refused to certify the results of the Nov. 3 election after local representatives on the Board of Canvassers deadlocked in a 2-2 vote, sending the votes to state authorities for canvassing.
🚨🚨BREAKING: This evening, the county board of canvassers in Wayne County, MI refused to certify the election results. If the state board follows suit, the Republican state legislator will select the electors. Huge win for @realDonaldTrump

The issue appeared to be drawn down party lines.
“Based on what I saw and went through in poll books in this canvass, I believe that we do not have complete and accurate information in those poll books,” board chairwoman Monica Palmer, a Republican, said, the Detroit News reported.
Board Vice Chairman Jonathan Kinloch, a Democrat, called the inaction “reckless and irresponsible.”
If other Republican lawmakers and elected officials follow suit, President Trump may still have a fighting chance to win back this election.
