Republican Senators David Perdue (pictured) and Kelly Loeffler from Georgia demand the resignation of Georgia’s secretary of state, Brad Raffensperger.

The senators’ attack comes after Raffensperger refused to repeat unsubstantiated claims that voter fraud was rampant in Georgia’s election.

Joint statement Senators Loeffler and Perdue

In a blistering response Monday, Raffensperger said his resignation “is not going to happen.” He called the senators’ complaint that vote counting was not transparent “laughable” and strongly implied that the motive behind their demand for his resignation is that Trump is on track to lose the state.

“Was there illegal voting? I am sure there was, and my office is investigating all of it,” he said. “Does it rise to the numbers or margin necessary to change the outcome to where President Trump is given Georgia’s electoral votes? That is unlikely.”

Both Perdue and Loeffler are at risk of losing their Senate seats in a runoff election in January.
