President-elect Joe Biden has been confirmed as the winner in Wisconsin and Arizona despite Donald Trump’s continuous cries of election fraud.
“This election was conducted with transparency, accuracy and fairness in accordance with Arizona’s laws and elections procedures, despite numerous unfounded claims to the contrary,” Arizona secretary of state Katie Hobbs said during the vote’s final counting.
Governor Tony Evers, a Democrat, signed a certificate that completed the process after the canvass report showing Biden as the winner following the recount was approved by the chairwoman of the bipartisan Wisconsin Elections Commission.
“Today I carried out my duty to certify the November 3rd election,” Evers said in a statement.
“I want to thank our clerks, election administrators, and poll workers across our state for working tirelessly to ensure we had a safe, fair, and efficient election. Thank you for all your good work.”
The last Democrat to carry the southwestern state in the race for the White House was Bill Clinton in 1996, marking a significant shift of the US electoral map this year.
This comes after Pennsylvania’s supreme court dismissed on Saturday a Republican lawsuit that had sought to invalidate mail-in ballots in the state.
The court dismissed both claims in a unanimous decision, calling the second one an “extraordinary proposition that the court disenfranchise all 6.9 million Pennsylvanians who voted in the general election.”
