A Georgia state senator and lieutenant governor hopeful vowed to investigate all election fraud in the state. In a campaign ad released on Monday, Sen. Burt Jones (R-Ga.) made fun of Democrat reactions to the calls for voter fraud investigations in Georgia.
Jones went on to question why the left has reacted in such a manner if there truly was no fraud.
“Let me ask you a simple question: if there wasn’t any cheating or fraud in the 2020 election, why every time we call for a full investigation does Stacey Abrams and the Democrats respond like this?” he questioned. “Pretty much tells you everything you need to know.”
The Democrats can SCREAM all they want, but I’ll keep FIGHTING for a full investigation of the 2020 election to expose any and all voter fraud.
Because that’s what real leadership does. pic.twitter.com/UqeGtbmOTZ

Jones has won praise from President Trump as a result of his consistent push for election integrity. The Trump ally filed paperwork to run for lieutenant governor as incumbent Geoff Duncan maintained he would not seek reelection.
