Arizona Governor Waits All Trump’s Lawsuits To Be Settled To Certify Biden’s Win
Immediately following a press conference by Rudy Giuliani and other members of Donald Trump's team, Arizona Governor Doug Ducey suspended the state's election results certification pending the end of the trials.
“There are legal claims that are being challenged in court and everybody on the ballot has certain access rights and remedies and if they want to push that they are able. Once those are adjudicated and the process plays out, I will accept the results of the election,” the Republican governor said.
Trump's campaign claims are based on multiple irregularities, as well as a surge in ballots in favor of Joe Biden. In the initial stages of the count, Trump was in the lead, but in the final stages, Biden collected the majority and retained the lead by a margin of 11 thousand votes.
Trump said that the reduction in the difference in ballots was at first 200 thousand people, and in less than 1 hour it became 10 thousand. The US President has filed several lawsuits demanding a recount.
From 200,000 votes to less than 10,000 votes. If we can audit the total votes cast, we will easily win Arizona also! https://t.co/3eZHjdZL98— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 12, 2020
In northwestern Arizona, Mohave County officials postponed their certification until Nov. 23, while other counties press ahead.
“The party is pushing for not only the county supervisors but everyone responsible for certifying and canvassing the election to make sure that all questions are answered so that voters will have confidence in the results of the election,” said Zach Henry, a spokesman for the Arizona Republican Party to the Associated Press.
