‘They’re At It Again’: Trump Claims Election Fraud in Arizona

The previous president’s candidate of choice, Blake Masters, is projected to get rid of after days of counting.

Former US Leader Donald Trump claimed on Friday that Republican candidate Blake Masters lost their bid for the Senate due to  “ voter fraud”   in Arizona. Masters was preliminarily declared to have lost to Democrat Mark Kelly on Friday, after an political election marred by malfunctioning devices and slow counting of votes.

“ They’re at this again, ”   Trump wrote on his Reality Social platform.   “ Voting machines within large numbers didn’t work, but only in Republican areas. People were forced to wait in-line for hours, then got exhausted… and left the voting lines by the thousands.

“ This is a scam and voter fraud, no different from stuffing the ballot boxes, ”   he continued, referencing his own allegations that pro-Democrat poll workers engaged in ballot harvesting to deliver Arizona to President Joe Biden in 2020.

“ They stole the electron (sic) from Blake Experts, ”   he or she concluded, demanding that authorities in the state  “ do election over again! ”

Kelly was declared the champion by multiple US press outlets on Friday night, with the Democrat incumbent leading Masters by 52% in order to 46%. Masters has not conceded, however , and 13% of the vote remains to be counted. Should Kelly prevail or Masters accept defeat, control over the US Senate will hinge on Nevada, where His party Adam Laxalt is leading by less than a percentage stage; and Georgia, where a runoff election is set for next month. Republicans need both seats to gain a majority in the top chamber.

Maricopa County is the largest and many populous county in Arizona, encompassing the cities of Phoenix, Scottsdale, and Tempe. Republicans began sounding the particular alarm when one in five voting machines in more than 200 polling stations throughout the county broke down on Tuesday. With long lines forming, Masters and a number of other Republican candidates filed an  emergency match   to extend voting hours, which was rejected.

Republican suspicions of fraud were heightened once the counting of ballots slowed to a trickle after political election day. Although officials in Maricopa County say that tabulating these ballots can take per week or longer, the state of Florida manages to depend almost all of its ballots in a single night, despite having four times the population of Maricopa County.

Speaking to Fox News’ Tucker Carlson on Friday, Masters  blamed   their struggle in Arizona on miscounted ballots and on His party leader Mitch McConnell neglecting to adequately fund his campaign.
