[Ed. – Which will do no good, because the certification is what will allow Georgia to cast its electoral votes for Biden on 14 December. The behavior of Georgia Republicans has made it certain the runoffs will be attended by whatever vote manipulation was involved in the general election. Nothing will change in time to affect the authenticity of the runoffs.]
Georgia’s Republican Governor Brian Kemp certified the state’s election results Friday, saying that now that the results are certified, the Trump campaign can pursue other legal options to call for a recount. Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, also a Republican, told reporters Friday morning that President-elect Biden had definitively won the state, after the state’s hand recount was completed Thursday.
But Kemp didn’t endorse the results, instead calling for another full hand recount. Kemp, who served as Georgia secretary of state before Raffensperger, has not publicly defended the state’s election process from accusations from the president and his campaign. He alleged Friday that the audit revealed significant errors made in several counties, including Floyd, Douglas and Walton.
