ATLANTA, GA – As expected Georgia’s Secretary of State has announced a recount in the Peach State amid a swirl of election fraud allegations as Democrat Joe Biden narrowly leads President Donald Trump.
More than that, the Senate races in Georgia are still undecided, and could be heading for runoffs if the recount doesn’t reveal candidates reaching at least 50 percent of the vote.
From Fox Atlanta:
“Georgia’s Secretary of State says that the state will do a full recount of votes by hand in the state’s presidential election results.
Speaking at the Georgia Capitol, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said he is also moving the special election that was originally scheduled for December to the same date as the Senate runoffs.
These moves would protect the integrity of the election, make for better election administration, and save taxpayers millions of dollars, Raffensperger said.
“It will be a heavy lift, but we will work with the counties to get this done in time for the state certification,” he said.
As of Wednesday, 97 of Georgia’s 159 counties had submitted their final vote numbers, with President-elect Joe Biden currently up by 14,111 votes to President Donald Trump.
“Every legal vote will count,” Raffensperger said. “We will continue to enforce the law.””
