Former President Donald Trump may not be appearing on any ballot during the midterm elections but he's made it a point the inject himself into a number of down-ballot elections in the state of Georgia. The latest example of his actions stems from a leaked election robocall placed earlier this week on behalf of U.S. Rep. Jody Hice (R-Ga.).

The call, which was obtained by The Jolt, featured a rambling Trump once again diverting from the main issue to air his grievances about the previous selection, widespread voter fraud conspiracy, and more disinformation.

“Hello, this is President Donald J. Trump, hopefully your all time favorite president of all time,” Trump began. “Georgia has one of the worst secretary of states in America, and I mean the worst, RINO Brad Raffensperger.”

He went on to make a number of unproven accusations against Raffensberger by claiming that he could be“perhaps in collusion with Stacey Abrams, I don’t know if that’s possible, but perhaps,” and praises Hice for his commitment to 'free, fair and honest elections.'”

Although he began with stinging rebukes of Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (R), the conversation quickly shifted to his own agenda. He went on to endorse Jake Evans, a Republican candidate running for Congress in Georgia's 6th District, and his long-time ally, Herschel Walker who is running as a REpublican candidate for the U.S. Senate.

The latest comes as Trump focuses on Georgia in hopes of ridding the state of another official he's not fond of: Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R). But as much as Trump may want the governor ousted from office, statistics reportedly show that Georgia residents do not exactly agree with Trump's stance.

In addition to the support of Georgian Republicans, Kemp is also said to be receiving donations from top-ranking Republicans within the party. Per The Jolt: "Kemp’s leadership committee – Georgians First – is also expected to report later today that it received a $5,000 contribution from former President George W. Bush, who has also felt the ire of Trump over the years. Bush largely steered clear of commenting on his successors, but in 2021 called the U.S. a 'country divided' under Trump."

Although Trump may not be pleased with Republicans like Kemp and Bush, there may be very little he can do about it.
