“We’re pretty disappointed. We’re doing an investigation. We don’t want to jump to any conclusions,” Blackman said. “Every vote must be counted, and I’m committed to everybody’s ability to participate in the election.”
The PSC race was on the same ballot as two highly publicized U.S. Senate contests, won by Democratic challengers Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock. The pair ousted U.S. Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue.
There’s no obvious indication in election totals that a significant number of votes went missing in the PSC race. Blackman received over 2.2 million votes, more than Loeffler but less than McDonald, Perdue, Ossoff and Warnock.
