DETROIT (AP) — President Donald Trump has summoned Michigan’s Republican legislative leaders to the White House for an extraordinary meeting Friday. It comes amid a long shot GOP push to subvert the democratic process that handed the battleground state to Democrat Joe Biden. Two people familiar with the matter tell The Associated Press that Trump invited Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey and House Speaker Lee Chatfield. They agreed to go, according to a state official aware of the leaders’ plans. The two officials spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss private conversations. It was not immediately clear what the meeting is about. Neither Shirkey nor Chatfield commented.

DETROIT (AP) — Poll book problems, unbalanced precincts and false reads are at the heart of the GOP’s long shot efforts to toss out thousands of votes in Detroit and other largely Black cities that contributed to Joe Biden’s victory in Michigan. But experts say those issues are present in all elections and almost never indicate any serious threat to the integrity of the results. A state canvassing board is expected on Monday to begin certifying election results from each of Michigan’s 83 counties, including Wayne County, where two Republican canvassers grudgingly certified the election due to what they called ballot “discrepancies” in Detroit precincts.

DETROIT (AP) — Charles Levin has died at age 94. Levin was a retired Michigan Supreme Court justice who served for 24 years after creating a party to run as an independent candidate. Levin formed his own independent party to get on the 1972 ballot instead of being nominated by the dominant political parties. Levin won and was reelected in 1980 and 1988. Levin came from a venerable Detroit family steeped in public service. His father, Theodore, was a federal judge whose name is on the downtown courthouse. Cousins include retired U.S. Sen. Carl Levin and U.S. Rep. Sander Levin.

DETROIT (AP) — Two men face a first-degree murder charge and other counts in the fatal drive-by shooting of a 7-year-old Detroit girl last month. Prosecutors said Thursday that 19-year-old Emmett Williams Jr. of Detroit and 22-year-old Christion Mitchell-Childress of Southfield have been charged in the Oct. 28 death of Reginae Williams. Authorities allege the pair drove by the child’s home and fired into the building, striking her in the head as she slept in the living room. The girl child died two days later. Mitchell-Childress remained at large Thursday.
