Trump, Republicans claim Arizona election fraud amid tight McSally-Sinema race for Senate

Source: AZ Central

President Donald Trump and Republicans in Arizona and nationally are stoking claims of deliberate election fraud in the state's U.S. Senate race as Martha McSally and Kyrsten Sinema await results of a vote that could swing in either's favor.

The tight race has left Republicans in jeopardy of losing a Senate seat in the state for the first time in 30 years.

Though McSally held a lead in early vote totals, the tally flipped in Sinema's favor Thursday night. Updated early results Friday morning kept Sinema with a 9,000-plus advantage, but an estimated 400,000 ballots remained to be counted.

"Just out — in Arizona, SIGNATURES DON'T MATCH," Trump posted on Twitter Friday afternoon. "Electoral corruption — Call for a new Election? We must protect our Democracy!"

7. Where's the proof/evidence of fraud? AZ simply counting the votes of those who voted

That's what we do in a democracy.

Not counting all the votes has been going on for years. When I found out back in the 90s that Absentee ballots were never counted unless the race was close, I was pissed. That's when I started exclusively voting in person sot that I knew my vote would be counted.

But it's a new era now with the majority of the electorate voting early, absentee, mail in ballots, it's time that ALL VOTES BE COUNTED, not just those votes placed on election day.

They have people claiming fraud , while they're committing crimes, organized criminals acts, and election fraud. trump has McConnell stacking their courts with loyalist who'll promote their agenda for them , and to stay in power. All just like Putin used in russia too.
