Chatfield and Shirkey issued a joint statement after the meeting, saying they had not seen anything that would 'change the outcome' of the race.

And the candidates who win the most votes win elections and Michigan's electoral votes. These are simple truths and should provide confidence in our elections,' they added.

The photos of the champagne drinks on Friday drew further backlash on Twitter, as critics slammed the lawmakers for the pricey drink of choice amid the ongoing pandemic.
