Georgia GOP lieutenant governor denies 'credible examples' of fraud in election

Georgia’s Republican lieutenant governor said Sunday that state officials have not seen “credible examples” of fraud in the state in the presidential election.

If his lead holds, Biden would be the first Democratic presidential candidate to win the state in three decades.

Asked Monday by CNN’s John Berman whether his office had seen any evidence of widespread irregularities or fraud, Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan (R) said "We've not seen any get to our office yet."


"And certainly we'll make sure that every sort of legal opportunity to make sure that — if there's an issue out there, we want to make sure we understand it, investigate it and be able to make sure we're able to rectify it," he added Monday. "We've not had any sort of credible incidents raised to our level yet and so we'll continue to make sure that the opportunity to make sure every legal ballot is counted is there, but you know at this point, we've not seen any sort of credible examples."

Duncan added that the state would review and investigate credible examples of potential voter fraud if anyone came forward with them.

"We've got the secretary of state's office, the attorney general's office," he said. "We have every reason to listen to those claims and to investigate them, and so if something arises in the next few days, then certainly we want to make sure we investigate that and that's what our job is."
