Republicans Confirm Election Integrity in Georgia
After the 2020 election, Republican leaders in Georgia worked hard to confirm the election was secure and honest.
After 3 ballot counts, Georgia’s Republican Secretary of State, Brad Raffensperger, confirmed election results were correct. His announcement angered then President Donald Trump, who had called Raffensperger personally to request “he find enough votes” to overturn the election.
“We've never found systemic fraud -- not enough to overturn the election. We have over 250 cases right now ... but right now we don't see anything that would overturn, you know, the will of the people here in Georgia," Raffensberger said in December 2020.
“Yeah, sad but true ... I’m a conservative Republican and I’m disappointed, but those are the results,” Sec. of State Brad Raffensperger tells @GStephanopoulos when asked if there’s no doubt in his mind that President Trump lost the state of Georgia.
State and federal officials, including Trump’s own attorney general, have said there was no evidence of widespread fraud in the 2020 election. Disputing President Donald Trump’s persistent claims, Attorney General William Barr declared the U.S. Justice Department has uncovered no evidence of widespread voter fraud that could change the outcome of the 2020 election.
*Since Raffensperger refused, Trump has since backed another Republican opponent to replace him in the coming election.
