Downplayed claims election was stolen
“Kevin Rinke, the Metro Detroit businessman who’s the newest addition to the race for governor, said he’s “not seen anything that would indicate there was fraud” in the 2020 presidential election.
“I think the election has been certified, and that stands for itself,” Rinke said.
He made the comments during an appearance on WKAR’s “Off The Record.”
“I don’t know,” he said when asked about former President Donald Trump’s assertions that the Michigan vote was “stolen” from him. “Certainly, I don’t look back. I look forward in regards to elections.”
