Echoing Trump, @sendavidperdue is asking for the impossible - a recount “in which signatures on absentee ballot envelopes are properly matched and verified to their signature on the registration.” #gapol
County election officials verify signatures when they receive absentee ballots, but after that point, it’s impossible to match ballots back to voters due to ballot secrecy protections guaranteed by the Georgia Constitution. #gapol #gasen…
Now the @GaRepublicans leadership gets in on the action, with a letter making the same impossible demand — “an immediate audit of the absentee ballots cast in the 2020 General Election. This audit must include verification of signature match.” #gapol
And @SenatorLoeffler jumps on the same train, asking for something that can’t be achieved by state law protecting the secrecy of the ballot — to “match and verify absentee ballot signatures to their corresponding voter registration signatures.” #gapol #gasen

Meanwhile, the Pence caravan went the wrong direction on 285 - east instead of west - and is now back in the right direction trying to ease its way through gridlocked traffic to Dobbins Air Reserve Base. #gapol
We are moving again, but here’s a glimpse of the gridlock from the great @AlyssaNo_L #gapol

Sen. @TomCottonAR in Georgia: “We all wish these elections had been won on Nov. 3. But sometimes the Lord works in mysterious ways ... He has given you the opportunity and the honor to hold the line and make sure that Republicans remain in charge.” #gapol #gasen
To be clear, Cotton is talking about the Georgia Senate races forced into runoffs - not Trump. Says @sendavidperdue, making same claims he made in first round: “This is critical because the Democratic Party has been taken over by radical leftist socialists ...” #gapol #gasen
.@SenatorLoeffler’s go-to campaign stump speech addition: “Hold the line” - a phrase she’s uttered about a half-dozen times.
“I know we're gonna hold the line, because no one wants the radical agenda of the left.” #gapol #gasen

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…
