Arizona Gov. Won’t Accept Election Results Until Trump Campaign’s Lawsuits Are Settled

'There are questions, and those questions should be answered...'

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey said on Wednesday that he will not accept the results of the presidential election until President Donald Trump’s campaign lawsuits have been settled.

“There are legal claims that are being challenged in court, and everybody on the ballot has certain access, rights and remedies,” he said during a press conference, according to the Epoch Times. “Once those are adjudicated and the process plays out, I will accept the results.”

Ducey did not comment on the two legal challenges pending in Arizona—one involving Maricopa County’s audit process, and another based on the affidavits of two witnesses who testified about potential voter fraud in the state.

He did, however, say that voter fraud is a possibility, though he has not personally witnessed any widespread fraud or irregularity.

“I’ve heard about it,” Ducey said, “but I’ve not seen it.”

The Republican governor noted that he has “confidence in Arizona’s election system,” but there is still “some uncertainty left” regarding the presidential race.

“At this point in time in Arizona, Vice President Biden has about a 10,300-vote advantage,” he explained. “That’s about three-tenths of 1%, and there are legal challenges out there. There are questions, and those questions should be answered.”

Earlier this week, the Arizona GOP moved to stop county officials from certifying their election results until the Trump campaign’s lawsuits have been settled.

“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,” Zach Henry, a spokesman for the Arizona GOP, said in a statement.

The Arizona secretary of state, however, has resisted efforts to recount Arizona’s votes and accused the GOP of inspiring threats against her.

“This case is about delay—not the adjudication of good faith claims,” lawyers for Katie Hobbs, who is a Democrat, said.
