Donald Trump fired a warning shot at Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger on Monday. Trump endorsed a challenger to Raffensperger to fill his spot and give Georgians true election integrity.
“Wow, just heard the good news,” Trump wrote. “one of our most outstanding Congressman, Jody Hice, has announced he is running for Secretary of State in the Great State of Georgia.”
“Jody has been a steadfast fighter for conservative Georgia values and is a staunch ally of the America First agenda,” he added.
“Unlike the current Georgia Secretary of State, Jody leads out front with integrity,” Trump continued. “I have 100% confidence in Jody to fight for Free, Fair and Secure Elections in Georgia, in line with our beloved U.S. Constitution.”
“Jody will stop the Fraud and get honesty into our Elections!” he concluded. “Jody loves the people of Georgia, and has my Complete and Total Endorsement.”

On Saturday, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, whose office leaked information that led to deceptively edited stories against Donald Trump, was rebuked by the Fulton County GOP.
“SCOOP: The Fulton County GOP in Georgia denied the Secretary of State Brad Ratffensperger of being a delegate to his county convention from his own precinct,” Ryan James Gidursky reported. “Raffensperger [ed.] was not in attendance but sent a note asking to be elected.”
The news follows exposure of the Washington Post’s highly damaging and misleading report this week that former President Donald Trump tried to ‘steal’ the Georgia election was itself fraudulent. The Washington Post corrected its “report” on March 11th:
Correction: Two months after publication of this story, the Georgia secretary of state released an audio recording of President Donald Trump’s December phone call with the state’s top elections investigator. The recording revealed that The Post misquoted Trump’s comments on the call, based on information provided by a source. Trump did not tell the investigator to “find the fraud” or say she would be “a national hero” if she did so. Instead, Trump urged the investigator to scrutinize ballots in Fulton County, Ga., asserting she would find “dishonesty” there. He also told her that she had “the most important job in the country right now.” A story about the recording can be found here. The headline and text of this story have been corrected to remove quotes misattributed to Trump.
The Georgia Secretary of State could have spoken up to correct the record, but remained silent while Donald Trump was raked over the coals in the media before the election and by Democrats during their deceptive impeachment trial.
Now, Donald Trump isn’t being silent about who he would rather see as the Georgia Secretary of State: Jody Hice.
