Georgia Republican Gov. Brian Kemp doubled down on his pledge to ensure ballot security ahead of the Jan. 5 Senate runoffs, addressing concerns among GOP strategists that President Trump’s voter fraud claims could hamper Republican turnout in the critical state.
“I certainly believe there will be transparency in the runoff election, a lot of people that have volunteered,” Kemp said. “With the focus we’ve had on Georgia, that’s absolutely going to be the case.”

“We literally have to save the country, and win these two Senate races,” he said.
