Georgia to Certify Election Results in Biden’s Favor After By-Hand Recount
Georgia has confirmed their election results following their by-hand recount. Their statewide audit determined President-elect Joe Biden was still the winner, holding a tight lead of almost 12,300 votes. It’s a slight drop compared to their pre-audit but officials have repeatedly confirmed there was no widespread fraud or irregularities. However, during a press conference yesterday, President Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani continued to make baseless claims of nationally-coordinated voter fraud. He also argued the president still had a chance at securing a second term, which realistically doesn’t seem likely. Georgia, by law, has to certify their results today with a signature from their governor by 5 p.m. to designate the state’s 16 electors to Biden. But all eyes will stay on Georgia as they enter into their pivotal run-off elections in January. They currently have two undecided seats that will determine which party controls the senate. Vice President Mike Pence is expected to campaign in the state starting today on behalf of the Republican candidates.
