Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger formally certified the state’s election results on Friday afternoon, for all 159 counties. The results, via a hand recount, confirm that Joe Biden won the state with a 12,284 vote lead over President Trump. 

Raffensperger, a self-proclaimed "proud Trump supporter," dismissed claims of fraud and wrongdoing, telling voters that “numbers don’t lie.”

The Trump campaign can request a recount until next Tuesday. Before Georgia's results were certified, the president's campaign called for an "honest recount" to include signature matching.
