GA Secretary Of State: There Will Be Recount [VIDEO]

CBS News reports:

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensberger told reporters on Friday that the state will head to a recount due the small margin between former Vice President Joe Biden and President Trump. Biden pulled ahead in the state by a narrow margin of just over 1,000 votes as of Friday morning.

“This process is and will remain open and transparent to monitors,” Raffensberger said. Candidates must be within half a percentage point of each other to trigger a recount.

Gabriel Sterling, the state’s Voting System Implementation Manager, told reporters that there are 4,169 outstanding ballots in the state. Sterling also emphasized that the count would be thorough and transparent.
