10 Months After 2020 Election, Biden Still Wins Arizona After Recount
In SummaryA five-month-long review shows Biden winning in Maricopa County, which expanded his margin of victory over Donald Trump.
Joe Biden defeated Donald Trump again, expanding his margin of victory by 360 votes.
It took a five-month-long Republican-ordered review of Maricopa County’s 2020 vote to confirm the results in Arizona, cementing the win of Democrat Joe Biden over then-Republican President Donald Trump.
The review totaled a recount of 2.1 million ballots, which increased Biden’s victory by 360 votes.
The confirmation marked the first time in 72 years a Democratic presidential nominee won Maricopa County. The recount also debunks Republican voters, politicians and former President Trump who vehemently believed, without any evidence, that Biden stole the election.
In Detroit, several supporters of Trump chanting “Stop the count!” stormed a ballot-tallying center during the 2020 election.
The election review was run and funded by people and organizations who wanted a recount.
Arizona and Maricopa County taxpayers spent more than $3.5 million on the 5-month long review.
The three-volume report by the Cyber Ninjas, the Senate’s lead contractor, shows the margin of victory Biden had over Trump. The data in the report also confirms that U.S. Sen. Mark Kelly won in the county.
“The Ninjas don’t understand Arizona’s voting laws,” said Benny White, a prominent Pima County elections consultant. “They don’t understand the structure of voting systems.”
