Biden confirmed as winner in Georgia

Georgia confirmed Democratic President-elect Joe Biden as the winner in the state as it completed a hand audit of ballots on Thursday, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said.

“The audit confirmed that the original machine count accurately portrayed the winner of the election,” the secretary of state’s office said in a statement on Thursday evening.

The audit, launched after unofficial results showed Biden leading Trump by about 14,000 out of more than 5 million votes cast, ended with Biden winning by 12,284, according to data from Raffensperger’s office.

Biden is the first Democratic presidential candidate to win the state since Bill Clinton in 1992.
