Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger releases scathing op-ed criticizing President Trump
ATLANTA — Georgia’s Secretary of State is out with a new op-ed in Wednesday’s edition of USA Today.
The headline is blunt: “My family voted for Trump. He threw us under the bus anyway.”
Brad Raffensperger is criticizing President Trump’s campaign for questioning Georgia’s election results.
In the article, Raffensperger described the past few weeks as “difficult” for the voters in the state. He continued saying that Trump has refused the facts of the results.
“A losing presidential campaign refused to accept the facts, following a playbook written by a failed gubernatorial candidate two years before. A failed Senate candidate with nothing to do tried to undermine the integrity of Georgia’s elections,” Raffensperger wrote.
The Secretary of State also reiterated that elections are non-partisan.
“Elections are the bedrock of our democracy. They need to be run fairly and, perhaps more important, impartially. That’s not partisan. That’s just American. Yet some don’t seem to see it that way,” Raffensperger wrote.
