Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp and Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan, both Republicans, announced their refusal on Sunday to call a special session of the state legislature to deal with election fraud concerns.
Four members of the legislature called on the officials to convene the session to allow the legislature to select its own electors to cast Electoral College votes instead of the Biden electors that would vote for the state.
Kemp and Duncan released a statement saying that state law does not allow the legislature to select electors unless the election was not able to be held by the date federal law indicates.
It was reported that President Donald Trump called Kemp on Saturday to press him to hold the special session.
