7:20 PM: Breitbart’s Matt Boyle on the ground in Georgia, citing a GOP campaign official with knowledge of the matter: In Hall County alone, there has been a massive increase in Election Day turnout–which significantly favors Republicans. In November, there were 15,000 approximately Election Day voters there. This time a huge surge to approximately 23,000. At an approximately 70-30 percent split favoring Republicans among Election Day voters, that represents thousands–maybe as many as 7,000 plus–extra votes for the GOP candidates this time in that one county alone as compared with November 2020. The GOP campaign source told Breitbart News that’s just one county, and expect to see similar trends across the board in several others.
