As the counting of votes in the state of Arizona progresses, President Donald Trump is narrowing the gap with Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.
The difference is now 14,746, when the advance of the scrutiny is 98 percent. This state represents 11 Electoral College votes to determine who will be the president of the United States for the next four years.
The Trump campaign filed a lawsuit in Maricopa County Superior Court over rejected votes, from which the lawsuit expects there are over several thousand more votes for the president and other Republicans, according to the local Cronkite News, on Nov. 9.
In a statement, Arizona Republican Party President Kelli Ward emphasized the slogan that her party stands for and that it is in keeping with her constitutional rights.
“This election is far from over. The American people have a right to an honest election: that means counting all legal ballots, and not counting any illegal ones,” Ward said.
She added, “We will not rest until the American people have the honest vote count they deserve and our nation demands.”
After several media outlets declared Joe Biden president-elect, the results have been readjusted so that Biden is back at 259 and President Trump has 229 electoral College votes, with the addition of the 15 votes cast in North Carolina today.
On the House elections’ political map, 215 seats have been allocated to Democrats and 198 to Republicans, reducing the majority they won in 2018, according to the National Review.
Louisiana’s 5th Congressional District will go to a runoff between two Republican candidates, which would maintain the seat already won.
Twenty-two seats remain to be filled, with Republicans leading in 12 of them.
Projecting these results could eventually result in 224 seats for the Democrats and 211 for the Republicans, a shift of 11 seats from the congressional elections two years ago.
This is the way President Trump’s expectations are being realized, as he considers that since the end of the vote he is the one who has obtained the most votes and therefore will be re-elected.
In fact, the number of votes obtained in 2020 by Trump exceeds the record of former President Barack Obama in 2008 by more than 1 million.
