Trump narrowly lost Georgia to but refused to accept the results, culminating in an hour-long conference call with then-White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows and Georgia Secretary of State . Raffensperger refused to bow to Trump's pressure to change the vote totals based on unsubstantiated and incorrect reports.

In particular, Willis runs the risk of failing to balance the needs of her constituents (especially with the rising rate) while pursuing her criminal probe into the former president.
