Atlanta, Georgia – Georgia Republicans were expected to sweep the state during the 2020 elections, but both U.S. Senators (Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue) and President Trump failed to capture the vital votes need to move on.
Now both Senators want answers, answers from Georgia Secretary of State, Brad Raffensperger, by resigning from his position. A fellow Republican to both Senators, Raffensperger has ensured that there were no election irregularities and every vote was counted according to law.
“My job is to follow Georgia law and see to it that all legal votes, and no illegal votes, are counted properly and accurately,” Raffensperger said. “As secretary of state, that is my duty, and I will continue to do my duty. As a Republican, I am concerned about Republicans keeping the U.S. Senate. I recommend that Senators Loeffler and Perdue start focusing on that.”
Raffensperger has held the position of Secretary of State for two years. The previous Secretary of State was Brian Kemp, who now leads Georgia as the governor. During the 2018 elections, Governor Brian Kemp was facing Democrat Stacey Abrams.
Kemp was accused of tampering with votes and not using uncounted votes to help decide the election. We guess Loeffler and Perdue were expecting Raffensperger to do the same thing to help his fellow Republicans win the state and the majority in the Senate. But instead, he did the noble thing by keeping the election legal without any compromises regardless of the party outcome.
Loeffler will be facing the Atlanta based pastor, Raphael Warnock, for a runoff on Jan 5.
Senator David Perdue will also be in a runoff against Democratic challenger, John Ossoff, on January 5.
