Trump Endorses Primary Challenger of GA Secretary of State Who Refused to Swing Election for Him
Former President Donald Trump backed Agent Jody Hice (R-Ga.) previously today; Hice is running versus Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, who declined to swing the 2020 election leads to his state in Trump’s favor.
“Jody has been a steadfast fighter for conservative Georgia values and is a staunch ally of the America First agenda,” Trump stated in a declaration. “Unlike the current Georgia Secretary of State, Jody leads out front with integrity.”
Hice, on the other hand, has actually continued to support the unwarranted claim that the election was deceptive.
“Free and fair elections are the foundation of our country, which is why I am excited to announce my campaign for Georgia Secretary of State. Together, we can renew integrity and secure our elections,” stated Hice.
Trump is presently under examination in regard to a call he had with Raffensperger,
Throughout his call with Raffensperger, Trump neglected any argument that broke his persistence that he won an election that had actually currently been chosen for Joe Biden.
“The people of Georgia are angry, the people of the country are angry,” Trump stated. “And there’s nothing wrong with saying, you know, that you’ve recalculated.”
“Well, Mr. President, the challenge that you have is, the data you have is wrong.” Raffensperger informed him.
Later on, Trump stated, “So look. All I want to do is this. I just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have. Because we won the state.”
Previously this month, a dripped audio recording of a December 23 call exposed that Trump pressed Georgia‘s lead elections private investigator to discover the “right answer” as he continued to promote conspiracies about making use of absentee tallies in the state.
