Trump Closes Door on Brad Raffensperger by Endorsing Jody Hice for Georgia Secretary of State

Published

Former President Donald Trump has made a major endorsement in the Republican primary for Georgia’s secretary of state, backing Representative Jody Hice over Brad Raffensperger.

“Wow, just heard the good news. One of our most outstanding Congressmen, Jody Hice, has announced he is running for Secretary of State in the Great State of Georgia,” Trump said in a statement on Monday. Hice, who represents Georgia’s 10th congressional district, announced his candidacy just moments before Trump issued his endorsement.

The former president continued, “Unlike our current Georgia Secretary of State, Jody leads out front with integrity.”

Trump’s endorsement of Hice comes after his falling out with Raffensperger, a fellow Republican, over the state’s 2020 election results. The former president lost Georgia to President Joe Biden, but repeatedly claimed victory in the state and at one point asked Raffensperfer to “find” enough votes to declare him the winner.

This is a developing story and will be updated with more information as it becomes available.
