Political Rewind: Republican Debate On Election Validity Could Change Voting In Georgia
Friday on Political Rewind: Georgia Republicans continue to give space for debunked election fraud conspiracies from President Donald Trump and his allies. Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr joined his counterparts in three other states in condemning Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton’s petition to have the U.S. Supreme Court throw out the votes in Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania.
Carr defended the integrity of the election process, even after President Trump tried to persuade Carr to remain silent during a personal phone call.
Atlanta Journal-Constitution lead political writer Jim Galloway wrote an opinion piece Thursday about Trump's hold on GOP officials in the state.
"President Trump’s refusal to accept his electoral defeat has fractured the Georgia GOP along the line that separates the state Capitol and Washington," Galloway wrote.
