Georgia gubernatorial candidate David Perdue said that had he been governor during the 2020 presidential election he would not have certified Georgia’s results for Joe Biden based on the information available at the time.
The Hill reports:
“Not with the information that was available at the time and not with the information that has come out now. They had plenty of time to investigate this. And I wouldn’t have signed it until those things had been investigated and that’s all we were asking for,” Perdue told Axios.
He added if he had been governor at the time, he would have called for a special session of the state legislature to “protect and fix what was wrong for the January election” rather than to change the election’s results, Axios reported.
There has been no evidence of widespread fraud impacting Georgia’s election results, which were counted three times, including once by hand, Axios added.
After Perdue announced his campaign he quickly got a full endorsement from President Trump. In his endorsement, Trump note that Perdue would work to secure elections if elected Georgia’s next governor.
