Several media outlets, including CNN and the New York Times, have called Arizona for Joe Biden (D), who leads President Trump by roughly 11.4 thousand votes, though the president has expressed confidence that he will emerge as the victor if an audit is conducted.
More than a week after the election, several media outlets fell in line with Fox News and declared Biden the victor of the presidential race in the Grand Canyon State. Trump did not hit the markers he needed in Thursday evening’s ballot drop in Maricopa County, taking 43 percent of approximately 4,000 ballots counted. That leaves Trump trailing Biden by 11,434, according to the Arizona Republic, though other estimates vary.
According to Data Orbital, roughly 16 thousand ballots remain, 5.5 thousand of which are provisional ballots:
Cochise – 64.9%/33.2% Trump to Biden (1,122 votes)
Pima – 50.2%/47.6% Trump to Biden (5,589 votes)
Ballots left to count statewide
