Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, who has been under intense grassroots scrutiny after the 2020 election, is seeking re-election in a tough primary fight with U.S. Rep. Jody Hice.
"If ever the sacred trust of the voice of the people is ever compromised or violated, then we as a republic are in serious, serious trouble," Hice said last week on a campaign stop. "And I believe, with all my heart, that was broken in Georgia in this last election cycle."
President Donald Trump lost Georgia to Joe Biden, barely, in a statistical tie of 49%-49% after approximately 11,800 ballots separated winner from loser.
Raffensperger made news headlines after his post-election phone call with Trump, when the then-president said Georgia's election was riddled with fraud and demanded Raffensperger investigate. The secretary of state insisted there were few proven examples of fraud and his office reportedly leaked the phone call to the media.
Rob Chambers, who leads AFA Action, says Raffensperger represents the “establishment-swamp” wing of the Republican Party and will get those votes on Election Day, which is May 24.
“However, I think grassroots conservatives all across the state of Georgia understand what happened in 2020,” Chambers insists, “and they are going to fall in support of Jody Hice.”
