GOP officials have repeatedly said there are simply not enough votes in question to change the outcome of the race, so Harris should be declared the winner.
But during a court hearing Tuesday on Harris’ motion, Special Deputy Attorney General Amar Majmundar said that argument might not hold water.
“It’s my understanding that there’s sufficient evidence to call that margin into question, Majmundar said.
The statement provides the first glimpse into what state investigators may have uncovered – a hearing into the matter had to be canceled after the board was dissolved, and no date for a hearing can be scheduled until the new board is seated.
But where would all of those votes to erase Harris’ lead come from? One possible source is absentee ballots that were sent out but never returned.
