Bradford Jay Raffensperger (born May 18, 1955) is an American politician, businessman, and civil engineer from the state of Georgia. A Republican, he serves as the Secretary of State of Georgia, serving since January of 2019. He previously served in the Georgia House of Representatives, representing District 50. Raffensperger rose to national attention in the aftermath of the November 2020 U.S. presidential election. President Donald Trump lost the election, and lost Georgia, to challenger Joe Biden. After his loss, Trump refused to accept defeat and made false claims of fraud. Trump launched a protracted campaign to overturn the election results and keep himself in power, but was ultimately unsuccessful. As part of this campaign, Trump made a recorded phone call on January 2, 2021, in which he attempted to persuade Raffensperger to change the vote count in Georgia in Trump's favor. Raffensperger resisted pressure from Trump, and pointed out that the outgoing president's claims were based on falsehoods.
