Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) has become the GOP's favorite new weapon and they plan to use her against Sen. Mark Kelly (D-AZ) in 2022.
Former President Donald Trump doesn’t have the support of all the Republican officials in Arizona.
Stephen Richer, Maricopa’s county recorder, wrote a letter blasting the ex-president’s claims that the 2020 general election was fraudulent as an “abomination” and expresses his embarrassment with Republicans “concoct the most outlandish theories (Chinese ballots!) to avoid accepting the reality: we lost the top two races in Arizona.”
Arizona Governor Doug Ducey (R) announced that the state will withhold Covid-19 relief funds from schools that have mask mandates in place.
“Parents are in the driver’s seat, and it’s their right to make decisions that best fit the needs of their children. Safety recommendations are welcomed and encouraged — mandates that place more stress on students and families aren’t,” Ducey said in a statement. “These grants acknowledge efforts by schools and educators that are following state laws and keeping their classroom doors open for Arizona’s students.”
Joe Biden and John McCain were famously good friends. Despite their political differences, the two men worked together in the United States senate for two decades.
The friendship between the two men led to McCain’s widow Cindy supporting Biden in his race against Donald Trump in the fall. And it was quite an important endorsement. In 2020, Biden became just the second Democrat to carry the state of Arizona since 1952.
Katie Hobbs, who has served as Arizona’s Secretary of State since 2019 and defended the state‘s elections even as the GOP, led by former President Donald Trump, repeatedly assailed them with baseless conspiracy theories about election fraud, has announced a run for governor.
Speaking to CNN, Cindy McCain, the widow of the late Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.) criticized the GOP for its ongoing vote recount in the state of Arizona that critics say is designed to undermine trust in elections.
Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs called the ongoing Republican election audit of the state’s 2020 general election results “a farce” in an interview with CNN.
Maricopa County last week, as noted by CNN, “handed over nearly 2.1 million ballots and nearly 400 tabulation machines” to the state Senate after Republicans subpoeaned the materials, bolstered by the falsehood crafted by former President Donald Trump that the election had been stolen.
When Joe Biden was elected to the White House, he promised 100 million vaccine shots in his first 100 days. He has already exceed 100 million shots with more than a month to spare.
Americans who want to get vaccines are getting them in record numbers. But there are still plenty of people, many of them white male Trump supporters, who refuse to take the shot.
Although President Donald Trump has authorized President-elect Joe Biden’s transition, he continues to assert that the results in closely-watched swing states are fraudulent.
Earlier this morning, the president claimed that the results in Nevada are “fake.” The president’s comment was in response to a Twitter account that claimed the Covid-19 pandemic, which has claimed more than 270,000 American lives to date, is a hoax. (The president has often undermined the pandemic response, insisting from the moment the pandemic began that it would all be over “soon,” though this has obviously not been the case.)
Donald Trump and some in his orbit still have not given up on winning the White House. In order to do so he would have to have the results reversed in at least one state.
Part of his plan would also include winning the yet to be called state of Arizona. And while that possibility doesn’t look likely, it is still possible. The state‘s Republican Attorney General Mark Brnovich threw some cold water on that idea today, telling Fox News that Biden will win the state.
Donald Trump lost the 2020 presidential election by more than 4 million votes. To hear him speak, however, you would think the results are still up in the air. Trump, of course, has refused to concede to Joe Biden.
One of the most closely watched states on election night is sure to be Arizona. The state has not voted for a Democratic presidential candidate since 1952. Polls, however, are showing that Joe Biden has a very good chance at garnering its 11 electoral votes in 2020.
The election this year isn’t only about Donald Trump. Republicans are hoping that, even if Trump loses, they can still retain control of the senate. And with so many incumbent Republicans trailing in the polls, they need all the help that they could get.
Donald Trump repeatedly touts his approval rating among Republicans, usually putting it at anywhere for 92-96%. That’s not true, of course, but it’s likely somewhere in the high 80’s.
Joe Biden has opened up a three-point lead in Arizona as white women have dumped Trump and moved toward Democrats in the red state.
It is not uncommon to hear people refer to Donald Trump’s support as being cult-like. Even the supporters themselves sometimes refer to themselves in this way.
Just the other day, the President retweeted a message that had the hashtag #cult45. The tag being a reference to Trump being the 45th President and his people following him like a messianic figure.
As virus cases surge in Arizona, Republican Voters Against Trump is out with a new ad with the state's voters trashing Trump.
Donald Trump will not follow new rules in New Jersey designed to fight the Coronavirus. The White House has confirmed the President will travel to the state as planned this weekend.
New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy introduced new measures that require visitors to self-quarantine if they’ve recently been in states with major Coronavirus outbreaks.
In a letter addressed to the Arizona Republic, presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden called President Donald Trump’s upcoming rally in Phoenix “reckless and irresponsible.” Trump will also travel to Yuma to observe the construction of the border wall he made the cornerstone of his first presidential campaign.
The latest OH Predictive Insights (OHPI) survey finds former Vice President Joe Biden leads President Donald Trump by seven points (50 percent to 43 percent) in Arizona, a state that has no gone to a Democrat since Bill Clinton won it in 1996.
