Election officials in Georgia have completely debunked President Donald Trump's election conspiracy theories. On Monday, Georgia's secretary of state, Brad Raffensperger, said that "everybody's vote did count;" after Trump made a call to him demanding that his team find the votes to overturn the election which he lost to President-elect Joe Biden.
In an audio first reported by The Washington Post and obtained by CNN, in a one-hour phone call, Trump is heard pressuring the Secretary of State to quote "find" votes. Raffensperger, however, rebuffed Trump's demands.
President-elect Joe Biden is stumping for votes for the two Democratic challengers in Tuesday's Senate runoff election. The election will determine which party controls the U.S. Senate. Biden made his closing argument for the Democrats at a campaign event Monday in Atlanta. He said in part, electing Jon Ossoff and Reverend Raphael Warnock could lead to $2,000 stimulus checks.
