Raffensperger drew the ire of former President Trump after the 2020 presidential election due to his refusal to overturn the results of the election in favor of Trump. During a phone call in January, Trump threatened Raffensperger and said he wanted him to “find 11,780 votes,” the minimum amount needed to change the outcome.

In March of last year, Trump announced his endorsement of Hice for Georgia Secretary of State, with the representative declining to seek reelection in the Peach State’s 10th Congressional District.

“Unlike the current Georgia Secretary of State, Jody leads out front with integrity,” Trump said in a statement at the time. “I have 100 percent confidence in Jody to fight for free, fair and secure election in Georgia, in line with our beloved U.S. constitution.”
