President-elect Joe Biden is the projected winner of Georgia, Decision Desk HQ projected Saturday.
On Wednesday, Georgia’s Secretary of State ordered a manual recount of ballots with a deadline set on November 20.
Georgia is a Republican stronghold and has voted for a Republican in each of the past six presidential elections.
The Senate delegation from Georgia, along with the state’s legislature and governor, is firmly Republican. Georgia’s delegation in the House is split, with eight Republicans and four Democrats.
Georgia has 16 electoral votes.
In the state, a candidate can request a recount when the margin between candidates is less than half a percentage point, which appears to be the case.
