(FOX NEWS) – Sen. David Perdue, one of two Republicans in Georgia fighting to keep their seats in a tight runoff election, said Sunday that he doesn’t believe President Trump’s leaked phone call with the state’s top election official will have any bearing on Tuesday’s election.
The Washington Post obtained the voice audio of a phone call between Trump and Georgia’s Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. At one point during the conversation, Trump reportedly said, “All I want to do is this. I just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have, because we won the state.”
Georgia certified election results shows Joe Biden won the state by 11,779 votes.
Trump said Biden only won because of fraud and called on interventions from state officials that have yielded no major changes. The ballots were counted three times, including a mandatory hand count and a Trump-requested recount.
Trump’s critics seized on the phone call as evidence that the president was pressuring an election official to interfere, while Trump supporters said the fact that the audio was leaked shows the contempt that Georgia’s secretary of state’s office has towards the president.
