A scathing joint statement from Georgia’s two Republican US Senators — @sendavidperdue & @SenatorLoeffler — both in a Jan. 5 runoff for control of the chamber. It flies in the face of other Republicans who have praised the handling of the election. #gapol
@sendavidperdue @SenatorLoeffler Say the two senators of their fellow Republican, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger: "The Secretary of State has failed to deliver honest and transparent elections. He has failed the people of Georgia, and he should step down immediately." #gapol #gasen
@sendavidperdue @SenatorLoeffler Like other Republicans who have criticized the election, the two senators didn't show an iota of evidence of voter fraud or election irregularities. Earlier today, Georgia GOP Lt. Gov. @GeoffDuncanGA said there were no "credible examples" of fraud. #gapol ajc.com/politics/polit…
The response from Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger: “Let me start by saying that is not going to happen. The voters of Georgia hired me, and the voters will be the one to fire me.” #gapol
Georgia @GovKemp - a former top elections official - joins the civil war against fellow Republican Brad Raffensperger. #gapol

Joe Biden has surpassed President Donald Trump in Georgia, a state where no Democratic presidential hopeful has won since 1992. The race is still too close to call, but it’s a major moment as Biden has now erased Trump’s edge. #gapol

The latest in Georgia: Trump and Biden are separated by only 18,500 votes, and more than 50,000 absentee ballots from mainly Democratic-leaning counties remain to be counted. That doesn't include provisionals, military and overseas ballots & ballots that are cured. #gapol
The ballots are mostly coming from densely-populated areas, led by Fulton County and Chatham County (Atlanta and Savannah). Take a look at the breakdowns below - our @ajc team is keeping this updated throughout the day: #gapol ajc.com/politics/about…
If Biden flips Georgia, this will be why: Solid performance in core Atlanta counties, big gains in the inner suburbs, and undercutting GOP margins in the conservative exurbs and outer burbs. #gapol

State elections officials just received more votes from DeKalb County, the most important Democratic stronghold in Georgia, cutting Trump’s lead over Biden to about 87k. #gapol
If Biden manages to flip Georgia, this @nytimes map shows how Democrats pulled it off: They held court in urban counties and turned suburban and exurban counties a deeper shade of blue compared with four years ago. #gapol
The latest: Democrats have cut Trump’s edge within 80k votes. Expect that margin to continue to tighten as metro Atlanta returns trickle in. #gapol

Here’s why some pundits are predicting Georgia to tilt blue later today: Trump has a roughly 104k lead over Biden but the counties with ballots remaining to be tallied include some of biggest - & most populous - D strongholds: Dougherty, DeKalb, Chatham, Bibb, Richmond. #gapol
There are plenty of votes outstanding in R counties too — I’m looking at you, Jeff Davis County - but aside from Houston County they are smaller, rural places without a lot of votes to give. I asked a top Georgia Dem an estimate of how many Dem votes were left. A: Enough. #gapol

The @nytimes needle has moved and some at the Georgia GOP party are quietly taking note. The reason why? DeKalb is starting to come in, giving Democrats a net 100k gain. #gapol
As of 1:20A, Trump has a 240k vote lead over Biden in Georgia — and much of DeKalb, as well as portions of Gwinnett, Cobb and Fulton — remain outstanding. #gapol
Most of DeKalb is now in - and it helped Biden considerably narrow the gap. He now trails Trump by about 120k votes in Georgia, with still more to be counted in left-leaning metro Atlanta counties. #gapol
