Your Local Election HQ

ATLANTA (WSAV) – As vote counts continue across the country Thursday night, Donald Trump Jr. echoed his father’s comments about the integrity of the presidential race results.

About an hour before Trump Jr. took the podium outside of the Georgia Republican Party Headquarters in Atlanta, President Donald Trump made his first public appearance since Election Day.

The president, speaking at the White House, renewed his unfounded claims that Democrats are trying to “steal” the election from him.

“Everyone knows it — Donald Trump is a fighter,” Trump Jr. said. “And we’re going to fight each and every one of these. Georgia, it’s going to be important.”

State Rep. Vernon Jones and Congressman Doug Collins, who conceded in his bid for U.S. Senate in Georgia on Tuesday, also appeared at the Atlanta rally.

“Guess what? You’re going to have another election here in about two months that could decide the fate of the U.S. Senate,” Trump Jr. told the crowd.

No major outlets have declared a winner in the presidential race in Georgia. As of about 7 p.m., nearly 19,000 ballots were left to be counted statewide.
