The President is referring to Perdue̵7;s closely watched Senate run in Georgia against Jon Ossoff, a Democrat who has gained an interest in the Republican vote count. Atlanta-Constitution magazine reports that it looks like the two are headed for the same flow.
Fox News predicted a split even with both Democrats and Republicans holding 48 Senate seats after the election. Along with the race to enter the Senate of North Carolina, Georgia will be crucial for each side to gain control of the Senate of Congress.
James’s campaign ended in a narrow run that turned out to be one of the tightest races for the Senate in the country against Michigan’s incumbent Democratic Senator, Gary Peters.
James said in a statement, “Although Senator Peters is currently ahead, I am deeply concerned that millions of Michigandans may have been disenfranchised by some dishonest fraud. Although not everyone wins an election, voters must be confident that the election is fair and honest. If we cannot do that, we will end all democracy ”.
Trump’s tweet came as some of his supporters held protests outside of vote counting centers in key battlefield states.
On Thursday, Trump held a press conference at the White House, where he vowed not to “let corruption steal” the election. He has been criticized by Democrats and some in his party for his claims of widespread voter fraud.
“This is a case where they are trying to steal an election, try to staging an election,” he said.
