Wisconsin and Arizona finished their vote count, declaring Joe Biden the winner in each state, making them the last two states contested by President Donald Trump to finish. President Trump says he will continue to challenge election results in court.
Katie Hobb, Arizona’s Secretary of State, the governor, and attorney general, certified the state’s election results. Right after, Ann Jacobs, chairwoman of the Wisconsin Elections Commission, declared President-elect Joe Biden, the winner of the state’s 10 electoral votes.
“We do elections well here in Arizona,” Doug Ducey, the governor of Arizona, said. “The system is strong, and that’s why I have bragged on it so much.”
At an event on Monday, President Trump’s legal advisers made claims that the election was stolen. This comes a week after President Trump called the elections “the greatest scam ever perpetrated against our country.”
Georgia is doing a second recount at the request of President Trump’s campaign. President Trump targeted Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania election results. All three states have certified their results.
According to the Washington Post, President Trump’s campaign has brought in $150 million since Election Day. The donations gathered for President Trump’s new PAC could also be used to benefit him after his tenure is completed.
John Poulos, chief executive at Dominion Voting Systems, wrote an editorial in the Wall Street Journal published on Monday.
“The allegations against Dominion are bizarre, but I’ll set the record straight,” Poulos said. ” Dominion is an American company, now headquartered in Denver. Dominion is not and has never been a front for communists. It has no ties to Hugo Chávez, the late dictator of Venezuela. It has never been involved in Venezuelan elections. None of Dominion’s systems use the Smartmatic software that has come under attack, as any state certification lab could verify. There is no secret ‘vote flipping’ algorithm.”
As states certify their election results, more state officials and representatives are speaking out against President Trump’s baseless election fraud claims.
“This election was conducted with transparency, accuracy, and fairness in accordance with Arizona’s laws and election procedures – despite numerous unfounded claims to the contrary,” Hobbs said on Monday, according to the Washington Post.
Now that the state of Arizona has completed the certification process, President Trump can challenge the results.
