President Donald Trump has pressed the Republican governor of Georgia to help him overturn Joe Biden’s victory in the White House race. In a series of tweets, he took to Twitter, urged the governor Brian Kemp to call a special session of the state legislature.

It came hours before the incumbent attended a rally in the state of Georgia for the Senate runoffs. Meanwhile, he has continuously refused to concede to Biden’s victory, citing that his win was because of widespread voter fraud and irregularities.

Soon after the local and international media outlets, Biden was declared the victor of the presidential election, Trump’s legal team had filed a flurry of legal challenges seeking to overturn the results. However, they were met with little success as the courts across the country dismissed the lawsuits.

For the first time since 1992, a Democrat presidential candidate has managed to gain a narrow win in the traditionally Republican state. Currently, the state is the focus of January’s Senate runoff. If Democrats manage to win the two runoffs in the state, then the political experts suggest that republicans would also lose the upper legislature.

According to the reports published by the Washington Post, Donald Trump called Georgia’s governor on Saturday and asked him to demand an audit of the absentee ballot signatures. But governor Kemp, who has no power in this regard, refused the incumbent’s request.

Trump has repeatedly alleged that a surge in the postal ballots cast in the election has led to widespread voter fraud. Despite President’s claims, his legal team is yet to provide credible evidence backing their claims. After that, Trump took to Twitter and pressured him to demand a confirmation signature in a series of tweets.

Kemp replied to his tweet and stated that to restore the nation’s confidence in the electoral process, he had asked for the confirmation at least three times since the elections. In response, the incumbent said that Georgia’s governor would have to be a little tougher.

in Valdosta, Georgia, while talking to a rally – nominally supporting the two republican senators running for re-election, Trump said that he could still win the presidential election. However, despite the euphoria of the event in Georgia, many republicans are now concerned the Trump’s repeated claims would discourage the Republican voters from voting in the senate election.

Brad Raffensperger, a Republican and Georgia’s secretary of state, stated that there has been evidence to back the voter fraud claims by the incumbent. Gabriel Sterling, another key Republican and an election official of the state, also stated that Trump’s rhetoric of election fraud is inciting violence.
