Trump looks to take down Raffensperger in Georgia

Former President Donald Trump is expected to endorse Rep. Jody Hice in a campaign to unseat Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger in next year’s Republican primary, according to three people familiar with Trump’s decision…

Hice, who first won election to his east-central Georgia seat in 2014, is a staunch Trump ally who supported Trump’s efforts to overturn the election. He derided the Democratic-led push to impeach Trump over his role in the Jan. 6 Capitol Hill riot as “bogus.”

The 60-year-old congressmember has been publicly flirting with a bid, saying last week that he was “exploring options” and to expect a decision “within the next few days.” Hice also said that Trump was “supportive” of his potential candidacy.
