Georgia Rep. Doug Collins – who recently lost the Senate election – will lead the Trump campaign’s recount effort too close to call.
The move was announced on Sunday night and recounting in State Peach will begin when “the checks are over,” according to President Trump’s campaign.
“The Republican Party has the ideal that every eligible voter can vote legally and count,” Collins said in a statement.
Collins and Trump’s campaign both claimed, without providing evidence, that the ballots were “improperly harvested” in Georgia.
“In the upcoming tally of votes, we are confident to find evidence of improperly harvested votes and other anomalies that will prove that President Trump beat Georgia fairly again on road is re-elected, ”Collins said.
With 99% reporting, Trump is following President-elect Joe Biden about 10,000 votes in Georgia.
The recount cannot change the outcome of the election as Biden on Saturday passed the 270 electoral votes needed to secure the presidency with victory in Pennsylvania.
