President Donald Trump declared his preferred candidate Brian Kemp the winner of the Georgia governor’s race, despite the fact that Democratic candidate Stacey Abrams has not conceded since there are still votes left to be counted, which could result in a runoff.

He also cast doubt on the counting process in Florida, where the governor and Senate races are still too close to call and may be headed for a recount.

The voting workers are not “finding votes,” but still tabulating provisional and absentee ballots.
