Georgia certified it’s 2020 general election results on Friday — and the state’s GOP governor announced he will follow state law and accept the results.

“State law now requires the governor’s office to formalize the certification, which paves the way for the Trump campaign to pursue other legal options and a separate legal option if they choose,” Kemp said in a statement, The Washington Post reports.

“As governor, I have a solemn responsibility to follow the law, and that is what I will continue to do,” Kemp explained.

What the Trump campaign will do next is unknown.

“The Trump campaign has said it plans to file a lawsuit in Georgia challenging its administration of the 2020 election. The campaign has until Tuesday evening to request another recount of the results, which would launch a process to rescan the presidential ballots that have already been hand-recounted and audited. State election officials have said they hope the hand recount reassures the public about the outcome of the election. Nonetheless, they have been preparing for a potential machine rescan recount,” The Post reported.

Mike Kelly that sought to overturn last year’s law creating no-excuse mail voting and to throw out those mail ballots cast in this election," Philadelphia Inquirer correspondent Jonathan Lai reported Saturday. "This is the case the Commonwealth Court had earlier blocked certification in."

What can the left expect from a Biden-Harris administration? Pretty much nothing

On Nov. 7 of this year, the United States let out a collective roar that rippled across the nation, resonating the crowds of blue-clad people swelling the streets and the squares, and causing buildings to tremble as those inside broke out the champagne and began to dance. The celebrations lasted long into the night. For those few precious moments, it felt as though a curse had been lifted, a nightmare abated. Trumpism had ground itself to a resounding and decisive halt and it seemed that political space on the left, and on the center ground, had finally begun to open again.
