Georgia officials have confirmed in a third ballot recount that projected President-elect Joe Biden won the presidential election in the battleground state.
“We have now counted legally cast ballots three times and the results remain unchanged,” Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said during a news conference on Monday.
Final results from the state show Biden defeated President Donald Trump by 11,784 votes.
On Friday, Trump’s team announced that it had filed a motion to nullify the election results in the state of Georgia, saying that there were “tens of thousands” of illegally cast ballots that it had documented in the state.
Earlier on Monday, a US federal judge dismissed the lawsuit from the Trump campaign that sought to overturn the presidential election in the state.
