FEATURING TIA MITCHELL – Georgia’s Republican State Secretary Brad Raffensperger has just announced a hand recount of votes cast in the November 3rd election. President Donald Trump and President elect Joe Biden came within a few thousand votes of one another in Georgia. Just days ago, the two Republican Senate candidates Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue had called on Raffensperger to resign.
Now, control of the U.S. Senate hinges on those two Senate seats in the same state as all eyes turn toward Georgia. The Republican Party has been in lockstep with President Donald Trump on his claims of widespread voter fraud presumably in exchange for his support of the two GOP candidates for Senate.
