Arizona and Wisconsin certify Biden’s win as President’s attempts to challenge results fail

US news.

On Monday, the states of Arizona and Wisconsin certified their election results, reconfirming Joe Biden’s win in the two battleground states.

Officials in Wisconsin said that their recount of ballots only added to Biden’s 20,600-vote margin over President Trump who plans to overturn the findings by disqualifying nearly 238,000 votes in the state.

The long-shot challenge Trump’s team is mounting won’t, however, change the overall victory of Democrats since the incumbent candidate needs more than the 10 Electoral votes granted in Wisconsin.

In the meantime, Arizona also certified Election results and turned blue for the first time since 1996. The Secretary of State Katie Hobbs affirmed: “This was a historic election for several reasons.”

  • “Preparing for any election is an immense undertaking, even in normal circumstances. The complexity this year has been compounded by the pandemic.”

    “In spite of this, we had an extremely well-run election and saw historically high voter participation.”

    The Republican chair of the board, Clint Hickman, confirmed Hobbs’ comments: “No matter how you voted, this election was administered with integrity, transparency, and most importantly in accordance with Arizona state laws.”

    Later on, Trump tweeted: “WOW, total election corruption in Arizona. Hearing on now! Why isn’t FoxNews covering the Arizona hearings?” before posting a live-stream of the Arizona State Legislature Hearing on Election Fraud.
