REUTERS/Dustin Chambers(Reuters) - Election authorities in Georgia have opened investigations into progressive groups trying to sign up new voters in advance of twin January elections that will determine control of the U.S. Senate, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said on Monday. Raffensperger, a Republican, said his office was examining registration efforts by America Votes, Vote Forward and the New Georgia Project. He said some groups had been encouraging people who lived outside Georgia to register to vote in the state. Much of Trump’s anger has been trained on fellow Republicans Raffensperger and Georgia Governor Brian Kemp after Biden narrowly won their state.

ATLANTA — Jon Ossoff is ending the Trump era the same way he began it: as a young Democrat unexpectedly at the center of the political universe. If Democrats win both seats, they'll end the Trump era by giving Vice President-elect Kamala Harris the tiebreaking vote in the Senate. It would also be vindication for Ossoff, whose loss in the House race set off a familiar circular firing squad among Democrats. But the data [from Ossoff's race] told a different story," she said. She won in 2018 by 317 votes, flipping the state House seat formerly occupied by Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said the state’s machine recount of the presidential race is on schedule to be completed by Wednesday, and pushed back against accusations of widespread fraud in the state’s Nov. 3 election results. Brian Kemp and Mr. Raffensperger certified Georgia’s Nov. 3 election results over a week ago, on Nov. 20, declaring President-elect Joe Biden the winner of the state with 16 Electoral College votes. Last week, the state’s 159 counties began a post-certification recount of the state’s 5 million presidential votes, which the Trump campaign requested. This recount is a rescanning of ballots through machines, according to state rules. “Once this recount is complete, everyone in Georgia will be able to have even more confidence in the results of our elections,” Mr. Raffensperger said in remarks at the state Capitol Monday.

"There are those who are exploiting the emotions of many Trump supporters with fantastic claims, half truths, misinformation," Raffensperger said.

It will be a 'goldmine' of fraud, and we will easily WIN the state," Trump said.

Georgia's Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said President Trump "should leave quietly," after the state's election recount confirmed President-elect Joe Biden's win. Earlier this week, President Trump called the Georgia lawmaker "an enemy of the people" and accused him, without evidence, of hiding "tens of thousands" of illegal votes. Georgia's Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said it would be best for President Trump to "leave quietly," after the state's election recount confirmed President-elect Joe Biden's win. Unlike many Republicans in the state, Raffensperger endorsed Trump for president in early 2016, before he was even the clear GOP front-runner. Last week, Raffensperger told a local TV station he and his wife have been receiving death threats ever since.

Brian Kemp, a statement that could potentially create major discord only weeks before two critical US Senate runoff elections in the state. In a call-in interview with Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo, Trump harshly criticized both Kemp and Georgia Secretary of State Raffensperger for utilizing Dominion voting machines in the state. Trump, still smarting from President-elect Joe Biden winning Georgia in the November election, has repeatedly blamed the state's usage of Dominion Voting Systems machines for his defeat. Kemp, formerly Georgia's Secretary of State, narrowly defeated former Georgia House Minority Leader Stacey Abrams in the 2018 gubernatorial election. Under Georgia state law, a Senate candidate must receive at least 50% of the vote to win an election.

President Donald Trump on Thursday called Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger an "enemy of the people" as he continued to push baseless claims to explain his loss in the battleground state to Joe Biden. Ethics experts have asked the Senate Ethics Committee to investigate whether Graham "threatened anyone with a Senate investigation of the Georgia vote tally." On November 26, 2018, exactly two years before Trump's remarks Thursday, he endorsed Raffensperger for the role of Georgia secretary of state, tweeting that he would be "fantastic" and "great for jobs."

Philadelphia is 42.3 percent Black, Detroit is 78.6 percent Black and nearly 52 percent of Atlanta residents are Black. The Department of Justice took county election officials to court.

Losses by both Perdue and Loeffler would deadlock the Senate, giving Vice President-elect Kamala Harris the tie-breaking vote.

State officials are sounding the alarm on an uptick in death threats that they've received since the presidential election. President Donald Trump is fueling a wave of hatred and violent threats toward local officials in key swing states where he's challenging the 2020 election results. A PBS "Frontline" investigation also showed that state officials in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Arizona, and Nevada are facing death threats. The Trump campaign has lost four lawsuits alleging improper counting of ballots and massive fraud in Michigan. Two lawsuits by the Trump campaign have been rejected in Arizona due to baseless assertions that Republican votes were being thrown out and invalidated.

'There is no reason to believe there are widespread errors or fraud and the Trump campaign has no evidence to back up their baseless claims," she said.

While Mr. Trump has become obsessed with the idea of a global conspiracy, cybersecurity officials from his own government have said there is no evidence that machines were compromised. Ms. Powell said she planned to file a “biblical” suit in the state. On Saturday and Sunday, several of the president’s advisers urged Mr. Trump to part ways with Ms. Powell, people briefed on the discussions said. One of those people said that even Mr. Giuliani had recognized that she had gone too far. But Ms. Powell also made an easy target for deflection by Mr. Giuliani and others, as Mr. Trump vented his frustrations about the Pennsylvania judge’s scathing ruling.

That effort, which critics call an unparalleled push by a sitting president to subvert the will of voters, has met with little success. Trump will participate virtually this weekend in the last summit of the 20 biggest world economies (G20) of his term. There is a “right way and a wrong way” for Trump to contest what he sees as election irregularities, Susan Collins, the Maine Senator, said in a statement.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump, battered by back-to-back setbacks in his desperate bid to overturn the U.S. presidential election, persisted with claims of massive voter fraud on Saturday, two weeks after Democrat Joe Biden was declared president-elect. His campaign has not been able to provide any evidence for its claims of widespread and coordinated electoral fraud, however. “To effectuate this strategy, Defendants are openly seeking to disenfranchise Black voters, including voters in Detroit, Michigan,” said the lawsuit. PRESSURE TO START FORMAL TRANSITIONBiden, who has denounced Trump’s attempt to reverse the election results as “totally irresponsible”, was due to spend Saturday meeting with transition advisers. Senior Republicans have remained largely silent about Trump’s unsubstantiated claims of election fraud or have defended his right to seek redress, but pressure was building after several voiced doubts on Friday.

Arizona's top election official Katie Hobbs is preparing for Arizona counties to certify their election results by Monday's deadline, despite efforts from the state Republican Party to halt certification. In addition to efforts to undermine the integrity of Arizona's election, Hobbs says she's faced vitriolic attacks and threats on her safety — ones she says she was prepared for after a career in politics. I'm not backing down," Hobbs told Insider. "We've been in communication with all the counties, and the election officials have told us they don't anticipate any delays in certification," Hobbs told Insider in a Friday interview. With Arizona at the center of many high-stakes election disputes, Hobbs herself has faced pressure from Republicans not to certify the state's results.
