Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R) announced Friday that he will certify the Peach State’s election results, cementing former Vice President Joe Biden as the winner in the state.
Kemp stated during a press conference that the law requires him to “formalize the certification, which paves the way for the Trump campaign to pursue other legal options and a separate recount if they choose.” The governor did not explicitly endorse the results.
“State law now requires the governor’s office to formalize the certification, which paves the way for the Trump campaign to pursue other legal options and a separate recount if they choose,” he said.
Earlier Friday, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger certified Biden’s narrow victory in the state.
“Working as an engineer throughout my life, I live by the motto that numbers don’t lie,” Raffensperger said in a press conference. “As secretary of state, I believe that the numbers that we have presented today are correct. The numbers reflect the verdict of the people, not a decision by the secretary of state’s office or of courts or of either campaign.”
Revelations 6:8 And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with the beasts of the earth.
Biden is leading President Donald Trump by over 12,000 votes in the state.
