Arizona Judge Tosses Last Election Lawsuit In The State, Reaffirming Trump’s Defeat

President Donald Trump’s attempts to overturn the 2020 election results hit another roadblock on Friday after a judge in Arizona dismissed the final election-related case pending in the state.

According to the USA Today, Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Margaret Mahoney ruled that the case, involving only two ballots, would not have altered the outcome of the election.

Mahoney did not provide any further details on the ruling, but said she would eventually issue an order in writing, according to the report.

On Thursday, Maricopa County Superior Court Judge John Hannah dismissed another lawsuit from the Arizona Republican Party that alleged the county violated state law by allowing voters to cast their ballots at any polling center in the county as opposed to one in a particular district within the county.

Hannah ruled against the state GOP’s request for an audit of the county’s results, which would likely have delayed its certification of the vote tallies.

With 100 percent of Arizona’s precincts reporting results, Biden won the state by more than 10,000 votes, flipping a state sealing a victory that voted for a Democratic presidential candidate for the first time in more than 20 years.
