President-elect Joe Biden continues to lead Donald Trump in Arizona

Nov 10, 2020, 7:24 PM

PHOENIX — President-elect Joe Biden continued to maintain his lead over Republican President Donald Trump in Arizona on Tuesday, according to the Secretary of State’s website.

In the latest update, Trump gained 2,982 votes but continued to trail Biden, who tallied an additional 2,213 votes in Maricopa County’s latest update. Biden continued to lead Trump 1,655,192 votes to 1,642,379 votes statewide, a difference of 12,813 votes.

After Monday’s update, Biden led Trump by 14,746 votes.

The update included 5,379 ballots reported by Maricopa County, according to the Maricopa County Elections Department.

Across the state, there are an estimated 46,700 ballots left to be tabulated, including approximately 22,400 in Maricopa County. La Paz, Gila, Mohave and Navajo counties have finished tabulating ballots.

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.

On Saturday, the Associated Press projected that Biden unseated Trump to become the 46th president of the United States.

In the days since, Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris have jumped into action to get to work, despite Trump’s attempts to stop this action.

Trump has blocked the incoming president from receiving intelligence briefings and withheld federal funding intended to help facilitate the transfer of power. Trump’s resistance, backed by senior Republicans in Washington and across the country, could also prevent background investigations and security clearances for prospective staff and access to federal agencies to discuss transition planning.

Across the nation, Biden has received more than 75 million votes nationally, the most in history.
