The 2020 presidential election, while not yet over, appears to be moving along.
As of Monday, Biden received access and funding to start the formal transition of power into the White House. On top of this, Michigan, Georgia, and other states either have certified their election results or are in the process of doing so.
Yesterday, GOP members in Wisconsin filed suit to halt the state’s certification of its votes; other similar lawsuits have come forth this month, only to result in failure. However, time will tell whether or not Republicans’ lawsuit renders the desired outcome in Wisconsin.
Amid all these developments, the state of Arizona is also preparing to certify its votes. According to Republican Governor Doug Ducey, Biden won the state, as reported by Newsmax.
The Current State of Affairs in Arizona
Yesterday, Arizona’s GOP governor sat down with KTAR radio station to discuss the current state of affairs in Arizona politics. Amid numerous reports of fraud and irregularities, Ducey professed Biden as the winner of the Grand Canyon State; the Arizona governor then proceeded to claim that he trusts the integrity of the state’s election process.

Like other states across the nation, there are reports of manipulated ballots, vote switching, and other forms of fraud; however, this has not stopped all Arizona counties from certifying their results. On Monday, November 30, the Grand Canyon State is scheduled to formally certify its election results for Biden.
While on KTAR, Ducey dismissed any possibility of a delay in the Arizona certification of election results. The Republican clearly asserted that there’s “no reason” for state certification to not go forward.
Arizona joins several other states across the nation that are gradually certifying the former vice president as the winner.
A Shift in the GOP
Amid multiple state certifications for Biden and the General Services Administration providing him with the necessary means for an official White House power transition, some Republicans have redirected focus.
The focus of many Republicans now rests on the two Senate runoffs that remain ongoing in the Peach State. These two runoff races will be the deciding factors on whether or not the GOP’s Senate majority remains for at least another two years.
From right here in Hahira and all the way up to Hiawassee, I’m taking our message directly to the people: the Senate majority hangs in the balance, and we need YOU to stand with @KLoeffler and me to hold the line! #GASen #gapol pic.twitter.com/KASjczQKTb

As such, Republicans are urging Georgia residents to get out and vote for Sen. David Perdue and Sen. Kelly Loeffler; early voting for the two runoffs starts on December 14.
