Arizona’s election results won’t be completed until after the weekend, according to local reports.
A Maricopa County spokesperson said the counting of the ballots will not be done Friday as originally expected, reportedly blaming a “historic” dump of 290k ballots on Election Day as the reason for the delay.
“Arizona spokesperson for Maricopa County elections tells me the majority of ballots won’t be done being counted until after the weekend,” tweeted Ali Bradley of NewsNation.
“They initially anticipated 95-99% of ballots to be completed by Friday.”
“A historic 290k ballots were dropped off ElectionDay causing the delay,” she added.

Currently, conservatives are closely following Kari Lake’s gubernatorial saga against Democrat Katie Hobbs as well as Blake Masters’ race to unseat incumbent Mark Kelly in the Arizona senate.
Already, critics are slamming Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell for brazenly disregarding Masters’ tight struggle for Senate.
“Mitch McConnell dumping $9 million into Alaska so pro-abortion RINO Lisa Murkowski could beat an America First Republican instead of spending it in Arizona for Blake Masters, whose race is going down to the wire, should be the nail in the coffin for his time as Leader,” said journalist Greg Price.

Steve Bannon applauded Kari Lake’s efforts to help Masters in his race for U.S. Senate.
BANNON: Remember, @bgmasters was abandoned by @LeaderMcConnell — & it took @KariLake who’s in a dog race herself to say no, we’re going in as a team & we’re coming out as a team. How many ppl think like that? In politics, you don’t think like that. This is what leadership is. pic.twitter.com/5Bwi8gXm92
