ALPHARETTA, Ga. (AP) — Republicans in Georgia are calling for party unity to avoid more losses to Democrats in 2022. But they can't seem to get past finger-pointing over 2020.

At least a half-dozen local Republican parties around Georgia voted Saturday to condemn fellow Republicans for not helping overturn President Donald Trump’s November defeat.

That includes Gov. Brian Kemp and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. In Fulton County, the state’s most populous, a flood of new delegates ousted several incumbent officers despite their pledged fealty to Trump. The dynamics show how firmly Trump's grip remains even after leaving office.
