Georgia’s election was certified on Friday. Not long after that, the Trump campaign made it known that they were planning to request a recount. Both of Georgia’s US Senators have expressed support of the Trump campaign’s request.
From Senator David Perdue’s office:
“I support President Trump’s request for a recount in Georgia, one in which signatures on absentee ballot envelopes are properly matched and verified to their signature on the registration. Anything less than that will not be a full and transparent recount. I have spoken to President Trump several times in the last week about this, and as I have said from the beginning: every legal vote cast, should be counted. Any illegal vote shouldn’t. Georgians deserve full transparency and uniformity in the counting process.”
From Senator Kelly Loeffler’s office:
“I fully support President Trump’s request for a recount in Georgia. We must match and verify absentee ballot signatures to their corresponding voter registration signatures, investigate all voting irregularities, and count only the votes that were legally cast.
This isn’t about politics – this is about the foundation of our democracy. Every Georgian – and every American – deserves to have confidence in the integrity of our state’s election results, and this process is the best way to make that happen.”
