Biden took the stage Wednesday evening to say he was not declaring victory.
He then proceeded to say that he won.
He claims he wants every vote counted — Well, everywhere except Arizona, that is.
Biden claims he already won the state; The Associated Press agreed, as did Fox News. They appear to be the only ones.
See for yourself:
With Michigan and Wisconsin, Biden now has 253 electoral votes to Trump’s 213.
We still don’t know who is the winner of Arizona, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Georgia, North Carolina.
Deep breaths, everyone.
Let the counting continue.
The voters get to decide this.

5 out of 7 authoritative, national news outlets have declined to call the Arizona for a candidate.
The 2 that have (AP and Fox) should immediately retract their call.

The Lincoln Project, a liberal organization, is already starting to panic.
ARIZONA: Make sure your vote is counted.
If you voted by mail or early, track your ballot and contact your local election official TODAY to fix any issues: https://t.co/QzIpT5LwM0
Any problems call, https://t.co/lXPlSi4nni

Doesn’t sound like an attitude you would have if you already won a state, huh?
Fox News is one of only two news outlets who have already called Arizona for Biden. Wouldn’t it be great if they were the first to call Nevada, thus being the first to call the Presidency for Biden?? pic.twitter.com/pgV0CxvQLo

Even some within the Fox network, don’t believe Arizona should have been called for Biden.
Did Fox News' Greg Gutfeld just take a shot at his own network for calling Arizona so quickly for Biden?

There are also some complaints about in-person ballots being thrown out. The Arizona state attorney general is looking into it, according to a tweet he put out:
We have received hundreds of voter complaints regarding Sharpies at polling locations. Accordingly, we sent this letter to Maricopa County election officials. Let's get some answers. Read our letter here: https://t.co/c6FSFZiNj7 pic.twitter.com/HnZ16UTTrs

So, as Biden said: the voters will decide.
Buckle up folks, this isn’t over.
