Fact, Congresswoman @mtgreenee: your district had a lower early voting turnout than other parts of the state, and people we talked to cited messaging from you and the president as reasons they weren’t voting.
Good morning from Bartow County, about an hour northwest of Atlanta!
The Jan. 5 runoffs aren't within a recount margin, but the elections director in the majority-Republican county is doing a full hand audit to boost voters' confidence in elections after misinfo+attacks. #gapol
The margins in this race aren't even close, but about a dozen teams will still examine 43,034 ballots as a way to both practice the post-election audit process *and* hopefully show people they can trust the voting machines+absentee ballots after Trump+others attacked it.
It's important to note this is not some ploy to delay certification! The audit should wrap up tomorrow, and the deadline for all 159 counties (that's a lot y'all!) is Friday. It's not likely the races get certified any faster (or slower) than normal.
As the news of President Trump’s call with SoS Brad Raffensperger resonated across the country, both Biden and Trump headed to the Peach State last Monday for a final push to get voters to the polls in a contest that would decide Senate control.
"The letter was not a settlement offer, as you characterize it, but simply a statement that my client was not able to sit down and discuss the issues raised by your clients while there was active litigation."
Standby for some Georgia election lawsuit news, including the rest of this fantastic letter posted on a public court docket!
NEW: The Trump campaign has voluntarily dismissed four lawsuits challenging November's elections in Georgia after falsely claiming it reached a settlement with the state to review election data. #gapol
The truth is, the only reason I got this story *everyone* read is because of years doing stories *nobody* read - like voting machine contract analysis, COVID cases in rural elex offices, hours of boring court hearings...
At least the defendant's attorneys are willing to keep me informed, and at least this is like the fifty-leventh court case making the same arguments that have been repeatedly struck down.
But you've gotta love in the middle of a pandemic the lack of transparency.
I'm sure this also has nothing to do with the fact that in almost every single case, the Trump campaign/GOP attorneys have really struggled with basic facts and election laws in Georgia and it's been written about as such.
It's another Trump rally in Georgia, so it's time to tune in to Right Side Broadcasting Network's YouTube feed to watch, brought to you by MyPillow. And the Georgia Republican Party also sharing this stream on social media!
Sen. David Perdue, via video appearance just said "For weeks now, I've been calling to object to Georgia's electors in the U.S. Senate on Wednesday, January 6. "
Pretty sure that's not true and it's a recent development - and irrelevant since he won't be there for it.
President Trump has arrived. He and Sen. Loeffler stepped out without masks in front of a crowd of thousands. Whitfield County, where Dalton is, is a huge COVID hotspot in Georgia.
I literally have the entire tape, from the first hello to last goodbye. Towards the end, they try to get a meeting set up between Trump lawyers and the Georgia AG’s office (not on the line) to talk further. I’m no expert but that don’t sound like what the GOP chair says it is.
Raffensperger and his office have explained repeatedly all of these falsehoods and lies. I find it hard to believe he suddenly forgot it all on a phone call with a man he accused of “suppressing his own voters” leading to a loss.
That said if anyone on the White House side or the SOS side was on the call too, I would *love* to know how it went... hit me up!
Also hey @PatrickByrne if you're gonna lie and grift people about nonexistent fraud you should at least make sure you don't recycle photos that other people have already used... (and these have been floating around for a while)
Heading into Election Day, the Black share of Georgia's electorate is still slightly higher than the general election, which we can see reflected in both Trump-supporting white voters *not* early voting and better GOTV in Black Democratic strongholds.
