Republicans in Michigan asked the state’s election board to delay certification of votes in the presidential election by two weeks, a day after two state GOP lawmakers said they haven’t yet seen any reason the outcome -- a win for Joe Biden -- would change.

A letter Saturday from Republican National Committee chairman Ronna McDaniel and Laura Cox, chairman of the Michigan Republican Party demanded a “full transparent audit” in Wayne County, which includes the city of Detroit.
