GEORGIA—the Georgia’s secretary of state Brad Raffensperger determined Friday that there will be a recount of the state’s presidential votes, as Joe Biden took a narrow lead of a few hundredths of a percentage point over President Donald Trump–results appears to be suspicious.
Georgia is the first state to act in a public and transparent manner during the 2020 Presidential election. Other states have resisted transparency—and it has been alleged that fraud is occurring in Michigan, Wisconsin, Nevada, Arizona, and Pennsylvania.
In light of the voting fraud allegedly occurring across America and “with a margin that small, there will be a recount in Georgia,” Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, a Republican, said at a press conference. “Interest in our election obviously goes far beyond Georgia’s borders. The final tally in Georgia at this point has huge implications for the entire country.”
The election of the next president hangs in the balance of Georgia’s 16 electoral Georgia. Right now, Biden has a slim lead of 1,579 votes out of nearly 5 million cast. But according to reports 9,000 active military ballots have not been counted –a small number left to be counted but the numbers could put President Trump over the top for a second term. Gabriel Sterling, the state’s voting system implementation manager, has compared the margin to “less than a small high school.”
Another race that stands in the hanger is the United States Senate race between Senator David Perdue (R) and challenger Jon Ossoff who are facing a late winner runoff.
Two Georgia Senate races is expected to advance to a runoff, pushing Democrats’ hopes of a possible majority in the U.S. Senate back to January.
Sen. David Perdue holds a slight leader under 50% of the vote in the state, closely trailed by Democratic challenger Jon Ossoff. Following a surge of absentee ballots counted in metro Atlanta and Chatham County, only about 98,000 votes separate the two.
