PHOENIX – Democrat Joe Biden’s lead over President Donald Trump in Arizona shrinks again after more results were released Friday morning, according to Secretary of State statistics.

Trump, however, gained only about 3,300 votes on the former vice president. Biden was leading 1,561,147 to 1,517,368, the office’s website showed.

The update included about 60,000 ballots reported by Maricopa County.

Results from smaller counties could change the totals as they come in through the day. Maricopa County’s next report was expected at 7 p.m. Friday.

The Associated Press projected Biden winning Arizona shortly after election night, after an analysis of ballots cast statewide concluded there were not enough outstanding to allow Trump to catch up.

However, most media outlets have determined that the Grand Canyon State remains too close to call.

Biden overtook Trump in the vote count in battlegrounds Pennsylvania and Georgia on Friday morning, closing in on the presidency.

If Pennsylvania goes to the Democrat, it would clinch the race for the challenger, regardless of the final numbers from Arizona.

It could take several more days for the vote count to conclude in some states, allowing a clear winner to emerge. With millions of ballots yet to be tabulated, Biden has already received more than 73 million votes nationally, the most in history.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
