Brad Raffensperger, Georgia secretary of state, certifies election results for Joe Biden


Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger’s office says it certified the state’s election results on Friday, confirming that presumptive President-elect Joseph R. Biden won the state’s 16 Electoral College votes after a statewide audit.

Earlier in the day, Mr. Raffensperger had called himself a “passionate conservative” and a “proud Trump supporter.”

“Working as an engineer throughout my life, I live by the motto that numbers don’t lie,” Mr. Raffensperger said. “As secretary of state, I believe that the numbers that we have presented today are correct.”
