Some Michigan Republican leaders are signaling they may be reluctant to change how Michigan awards its Electoral votes in each Presidential election. 

Republican Representative plans to reintroduce bill that stalled last year. Similar proposals in other states have led Democrats to claim "election rigging."

Bill was introduced in 2012, but not acted on. It would award most electoral votes by Congressional district.
