Biden Takes the LEAD in Georgia.
Joe Biden has overtaken Trump in Georgia with a 917 vote lead as the President blames a burst pipe for the Democratic gains while he fell behind in the key battleground state although both candidates remain tied, holding 49.4 per cent of the vote as five million in the Peach State voted in this nail-biting election.
During a press conference held last night, Trump said, quote: “In Georgia, a pipe burst in a faraway location totally unrelated to the location of what was happening, and they stopped counting for four hours, and a lot of things happened.” Brad Raffensperger, Georgia’s Secretary of State, said there wouldn’t be any further updates until later on Friday.
Georgia is just one of the key battleground states that are set to determine who will get the keys to the White House. Joe Biden is now only a crucial 17 electoral votes away from becoming the president-elect.
The US president struck a typically defiant tone, accusing pollsters of interfering in the election process and Democrats of engaging in fraud. A judge in Georgia has dismissed a lawsuit by the state Republican Party and US President Donald Trump’s campaign that asked him to ensure a coastal county was following state laws on processing absentee ballots, AP reported.
Chatham County Superior Court Judge James Bass did not provide an explanation for his decision on Thursday at the close of a roughly one-hour hearing. The county includes the heavily Democratic city of Savannah. The suit had raised concerns about 53 absentee ballots that poll observers said were not part of an original batch of ballots. County elections officials testified that all 53 ballots had been received on time.
