Live updates: Georgian Secretary of State accuses Trump of being “thrown under the bus” during legal battle

Georgia State Secretary Brad Raffensperger has accused President Trump of “throwing him under a bus” in a column released Wednesday.

Georgia had “smooth” and “successful” November elections, Raffensperger wrote in an article in USA Today, noting that the state “finally beat the voting lines.”

“Georgians need to celebrate this, regardless of whether their preferred presidential candidate has won or lost,” he claimed. “Whoever is curious, mine is lost – my family voted for him, donated to him, and now he’s throwing them under the bus.”


    • About 5 million ballots need to be recounted
    • December 8 is the deadline for resolving election disputes at the state level

His remarks came after they had been chattering their heads from Republicans for weeks. The Trump 2020 campaign called for a recount of Georgia’s votes over the weekend, once again clashed with Raffensperger over demands that signature compliance play a major role.
