Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (R) is poised to win his reelection bid on Tuesday over state Rep. Bee Nguyen (D).

NBC News projected the win with Raffensperger at 53.6% of the vote and Nguyen at 43.6%, with 87% of the vote reported.

The Associated Press had the same percentages for the candidates but has yet to call the race.

Raffensperger has pushed back against Trump's claims of 2020 being a stolen election but has also supported the election integrity law that was passed last year amid Democrats' claims of voter suppression. He also audited the state's voter rolls, finding that potentially more than 1,600 non-citizens attempted to register to vote.

Nguyen has claimed that state Republicans have tried to suppress the votes of "Black and brown Georgians, working people, people with disabilities, young voters, and those who disagree with them."
