Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, who’s a Republican, released a statement on Tuesday claiming that Donald Trump could have won the state’s electoral votes if he hadn’t pushed conspiracy theories about mail-in voting.
Raffensperger told WSB’s Justin Gray that 24,000 Republicans who voted by absentee ballot in the primary did not cast votes in the general election.
“He would have won by 10 thousand votes — he actually suppressed, depressed his own voting base,” Raffensperger said.
In new intv with me, @GaSecofState says 24,000 GOPs who voted absentee in primary did not vote in General – says Donald Trump cost himself the election by sowing distrust in absentee: "he would have won by 10 thousand votes he actually suppressed, depressed his own voting base"
