Trump Receives 75% of Votes From LaPaz County AZ, Biden Lead Under 15k

Trump closes to within 1/2% in Arizona


Joe Biden’s alleged lead in Arizona is down to 1/2% after LaPaz County went 75% to President Donald Trump.

The votes came in on Monday during a ballot drop.

Arizona is far from over, despite the fact that Fox News called the State for Joe Biden so early.

With allegations of voter fraud still to be investigated, this battle may be a long one.

As the Arizona Daily Star reports, the lead is now under 15,000:

Gov. Doug Ducey is refusing to condemn those making unsubstantiated claims of election fraud even as he defends the lawsuit filed by the president challenging procedures used to tabulate ballots in the state's largest county.

In a prepared statement Monday, the governor said that "some results remain unclear" as votes are still being tallied. As of late Monday, there were fewer than 62,000 ballots that had not yet been tabulated.

The latest count also showed Biden continuing to run ahead of Trump, though the margin has slipped to fewer than 15,000.

Another big dump of numbers should come late Tuesday. That's the deadline for people to "cure" problems with their original ballots.

Some involve verifying a signature on an envelope that does not match what is on file.

There also are Arizonans who have to come to county offices before 5 p.m. on Tuesday to provide the proof of identity they did not have when they showed up at the polls on Election Day. They were given "provisional" ballots which will be tabulated only with proper ID.

If Biden maintains the lead, that leaves the incumbent with only the hope that a judge will order a new count of certain ballots that his attorney say may not have been properly tabulated.

"The president, just like any other candidate, has the right to all available legal challenges and remedies," the governor said. "We are confident they will be properly adjudicated."

12 News has more on Biden's eroding lead in AZ:

Maricopa County released their latest ballot count of the 2020 election Monday night.

Joe Biden's lead over President Donald Trump continues to erode as more ballots are counted, but less than in previous vote dumps.

After the department's most recent ballot count update on Monday, Biden now leads Trump in Arizona by 14,746 votes. Biden had 48.96% of the vote in Arizona while Trump had 48.52%.

Biden was named president-elect by multiple news outlets on Saturday after he was projected to win both Pennsylvania and Nevada, putting him over the required 270 electoral college votes needed to be declared president.

There are about 13,568 ballots left to process and tabulate in Maricopa County, the state's largest county, and an estimated 2,300 early ballots left to verify.

State law provides voters five business days after Nov. 3 to verify, or cure, their signature. There is no cure period for missing signatures after Election Day.

One looming question at hand is: Why did Fox call Arizona for Biden so early?

Fox News has only doubled down on calling Arizona.
