Trump attacks Georgia GOP leaders hours before runoff rally

President Trump slammed Georgia’s Republican Gov. Brian Kemp and its secretary of state Brad Raffensperger — calling their political loyalties into question — just hours before appearing at a get-out-the-vote rally for the state’s embattled US senators.

“I will easily & quickly win Georgia if Governor @BrianKempGA or the Secretary of State permit a simple signature verification,” Trump tweeted Saturday, amplifying his demands that they continue investigating his claims of fraud in the Nov. 3 presidential election.

“Why are these two ‘Republicans’ saying no?” he asked. “If we win Georgia, everything else falls in place!”

Trump and his attorneys have been waging a flailing fight to halt or certify the election results in five swing states, including Georgia, that were won narrowly by President-elect Joe Biden.

But the president’s fixation on his charges of election fraud has Republicans increasingly concerned about their chances in the Jan. 5 runoff, where GOP incumbent Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler are both fighting to retain their seats — and to hold the Senate majority.

Kemp is not scheduled to appear with Trump at the rally in Valdosta, Ga., which both candidates are set to attend.

Biden’s 12,670-vote margin in Georgia, certified by Raffensperger last month, has held up through two statewide recounts.

Trump’s campaign filed a new lawsuit to decertify the Georgia results Friday, and the president has repeatedly called Kemp’s inaction into question.

“The governor’s done nothing,” Trump said Sunday. “I’m ashamed that I endorsed him.”
