GOP Georgia election official: Blame Trump for these defeats

Sterling told Walker that responsibility for either Loeffler or Perdue losing would “fall squarely on the shoulders of President Trump and his actions since Nov. 3.”

“When you tell people, your vote doesn’t count and has been stolen, and people start to believe that, then you go to the two senators and ask the secretary of state to resign and trigger a civil war in the Republican Party when we need to unite, all of that stems with his decision-making since the Nov. 3 election,” Sterling said.

Sterling, a Republican, has frequently urged Trump and his allies to accept the results of the election, even as he at times acknowledged that he too would have preferred a Republican victory.
