Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey said today that he won’t certify the results of the presidential election in the battleground state until all the lawsuits in the presidential election have been settled. His comments come on the heels of a lengthy press conference during which Rudy Giuliani and Trump legal team members outlined numerous examples of election fraud in multiple states.
In Arizona specifically, the Trump campaign and state GOP filed lawsuits in Maricopa County in a bid to block officials from certifying the election results due to alleged voter irregularities and improprieties.
“There are legal claims that are being challenged in court and everybody on the ballot has certain access rights and remedies and if they want to push that they are able. Once those are adjudicated and the process plays out, I will accept the results of the election,” the Republican governor said in a news conference on Wednesday.
“We can trust our elections here in Arizona,” Ducey said, but added: “There are questions and those questions should be answered.”
Arizona state law gives all Arizona counties until Nov. 23 to certify the results of the election. After that counties are supposed to send their results to the Arizona Secretary of State, who then has another 10 days to issue a statewide certification.
Biden is ahead of Trump by about 11,000 votes in Arizona but the Trump campaign insists there is potentially enough election fraud that the results could be reversed if enough illegal ballots are invalidated.
“The party is pushing for not only the county supervisors but everyone responsible for certifying and canvassing the election to make sure that all questions are answered so that voters will have confidence in the results of the election,” said Zach Henry, a spokesman for the Arizona Republican Party, reported The Associated Press.
Earlier today, Rudy Giuliani and the legal team for President Donald Trump laid their “opening statement” out today by discussing the massive amount of evidence they say they have compiled in multiple battleground states. The former New York City mayor says there is enough evidence of voter fraud in battleground states like Pennsylvania and Michigan that, if those illegal ballots are thrown out, President Trump would win the election.
“I can prove to you that he won Pennsylvania by 300,000 votes. I can prove to you that he won Michigan by probably 50,000 votes,” he said.
Giuliani said these states need full audits and recounts of the vote and indicated the recount in Georgia and other states “means nothing” because fraudulent ballots will be counted again.
He outlined problems in Pennsylvania ranging from the prevention of poll watchers and ballot counters from doing their job to bags and stacks of illegal ballots being added to the totals. He also said Democrats in Pennsylvania have violated the equal protection clause by curing tens of thousands of ballots in liberal Pittsburgh and Philadelphia but not in conservative parts of the state.
Giuliani says witnesses in Detroit, Michigan have filed affidavits confirming they saw election workers coaching people how to vote and not taking proper ID to confirm valid voters. He said there are enough illegal ballots in Detroit, Michigan with votes only for Joe Biden that, if thrown out, would be enough to put the state in Trump’s column.

“They carried it out in a corrupt city, not in Republican places,” he said.
“There are 60,000 ballots in Milwaukee county and 40,000 in Madison that, as far as we can tell… that don’t have applications, he added. “If you count the lawful votes, Trump won Wisconsin by a good margin.”
