Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, who defied pressure from Donald Trump to "find" more votes to reverse his 2020 election defeat, held off a challenger backed by the former president to win the party's primary on Tuesday, Edison Research projected.

Raffensperger has been one of Trump's most frequent targets ever since he refused, emphatically and publicly, to overturn the results in Georgia's 2020 presidential vote, which Trump falsely claimed were fraudulent. Trump endorsed U.S. Representative Jody Hice in the tightly contested race. Raffensperger will face a Democratic opponent in the general election on Nov. 8.
