Every election, it takes weeks for Arizona to count its ballots. But as the Democrat in the tight U.S. Senate race there jumped into the lead in the latest results some Republicans have raised baseless allegations of fraud.
The most prominent is President Donald Trump. On Friday morning he suggested there was something sinister about “Democrats” adding to their tallies. “Now in Arizona, all of a sudden, out of the wilderness, they find a lot of votes.”
There is no evidence of anything unusual going on in the Arizona vote-counting – and no elected Republican officials in the state have cried foul.
