  • “The recount process simply reaffirmed what we already knew: Georgia voters selected Joe Biden to be their next president,” the Biden campaign in Georgia commented.

    On the other side, Trump campaign officials were not convinced with the results that should not be certified.

    “This so-called hand recount went exactly as we expected because Georgia simply recounted all of the illegal ballots that had been included in the total,” senior legal adviser Jenna Ellis said.

    “We continue to demand that Georgia conduct an honest recount, which includes signature matching. We intend to pursue all legal options to ensure that only legal ballots are counted.”
