Georgia governor candidate Perdue says he wouldn’t have certified 2020 election results
Georgia gubernatorial candidate and former Sen. David Perdue (R) said on Wednesday that he would not have certified Georgia’s 2020 presidential election results.
“Not with the information that was available at the time and not with the information that has come out now. They had plenty of time to investigate this. And I wouldn’t have signed it until those things had been investigated and that’s all we were asking for,” Perdue told Axios.
He added if he had been governor at the time, he would have called for a special session of the state legislature to “protect and fix what was wrong for the January election” rather than to change the election’s results, Axios reported.
There has been no evidence of widespread fraud impacting Georgia’s election results, which were counted three times, including once by hand, Axios added.
Earlier this week, former President Trump, who has claimed without substantiation that practices like mail-in ballots contribute to widespread voter fraud, issued a statement saying, “David Perdue has my Complete and Total Endorsement. He will not let you down!”
His statement added that Perdue would “secure the Elections,” and detailed other policies the former president believed Perdue would carry out if elected as governor.
