Georgia Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan, a Republican, told CNN on Tuesday that “the amount of misinformation” about the 2020 election coming from President Donald Trump and other members of the GOP is “alarming.”
When asked by host Alisyn Camerota on "New Day" whether election officials in the state were “making deals,” Duncan said, “certainly not.”
He added, "What is alarming is the amount of misinformation that continues to flow. It's alarming to me. It's certainly disheartening to watch folks willing to kind of put their character and their morals out there just so they can spread a half truth or a lie in the efforts to maybe to flip an election. ... That's not what democracy is all about."
Duncan warned that Republicans ought to “redirect their post-election approach” before the state’s runoff elections take place.
"I think short term we run the risk of alienating voters for our Senate race that is coming upon us for Sen. [Kelly] Loeffler and Sen. [David] Perdue. And we need them," he said. "And long term, I think we hurt the brand of our Republican Party, which is certainly bigger than one person long term. ... As Americans we need to see leaders that inspire us and not talk down."
