Trump campaign files suit in Michigan to halt vote count

(AP) -- The Trump campaign has filed a lawsuit in Michigan to halt the vote count. The campaign is alleging they were denied access to the opening of ballots.

Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien said in a statement Wednesday that the campaign "has not been provided with meaningful access to numerous counting locations to observe the opening of ballots and the counting process, as guaranteed by Michigan law."

He says a suit was filed Wednesday in the Michigan Court of Claims "to halt counting until meaningful access has been granted."

Stepien full statement:

As votes in Michigan continue to be counted, the presidential race in the state remains extremely tight as we always knew it would be. President Trump’s campaign has not been provided with meaningful access to numerous counting locations to observe the opening of ballots and the counting process, as guaranteed by Michigan law. We have filed suit today in the Michigan Court of Claims to halt counting until meaningful access has been granted. We also demand to review those ballots which were opened and counted while we did not have meaningful access. President Trump is committed to ensuring that all legal votes are counted in Michigan and everywhere else.
