On Sunday, the Trump campaign appointed Republican Rep. Doug Collins to head its recount efforts in Georgia as Trump’s team “ramps up their legal challenge of election results in several battleground states,” Fox News reported.
“Republicans stand by the ideal that every eligible voter should be able to vote legally and have it be counted,” Collins said.
“During the coming recount, we are confident we will find evidence of improperly harvested ballots and other irregularities that will prove that President Trump won Georgia fairly again on his way to re-election as President. Georgians deserve a free and open process, and they will get one,” he then added.
Last Friday, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said that a recount would likely happen because of the thin margin. The state law says candidates can request a recount if the margin separating the two candidates is 0.5% or less.
The New York Post also reported that the recount in Georgia will begin when “the canvassing has concluded,” according to President Trump’s campaign.
Trump campaign general counsel Matt Morgan said Trump’s legal team is “concerned about the lack of transparency in the tabulation process, especially given the reports of irregularities and improper ballot harvesting in Georgia.”
