Officials in the swing state of Arizona on Monday officially certified its presidential election results, confirming Joe Biden‘s victory in the state over President Donald Trump.

Secretary of State Katie Hobbs (D), Gov. Doug Ducey (R), Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich (R), and Chief Justice of the Arizona Supreme Court Robert Brutinel (R) all attended the event to sign the documents officially declaring that Biden had won the Grand Canyon State by 10,000 votes. While Trump continues to challenge the results and refuses conceding the election, Hobbs and Ducey at the election officiation event both stated that their state’s election was accurate and secure.

“Despite the unprecedented challenges, Arizonans showed up for our democracy,” Hobbs said.

“Every Arizona voter has my thanks and should know that they can stand proud that this election was conducted with transparency, accuracy and fairness in accordance with Arizona’s laws and elections procedures despite numerous unfounded claims to the contrary,” Hobbs added.

“The system is strong, and that is why I have bragged on it so much,” Ducey also said.

This follows a pair of Trump’s attorneys, Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis, recently taking part in an unofficial hearing organized by some Arizona GOP lawmakers. The two pressed the swing state to ignore certifying the results and have the Republican-controlled state legislature appoint its own delegation of Electoral College electors, but legal scholars have heavily scrutinized such an action and doubt that this move would hold up legally.

So far, Trump’s legal challenges have been unsuccessful in changing the results of the divisive presidential election.

This election carries historical significance, in that Arizona has only chosen a Democrat for president once since 1972, which was back in 1996 when then-incumbent President Bill Clinton easily defeated Senate Republican Leader Bob Dole.

Additionally, officials certified the results of the U.S. Senate race, which confirmed astronaut Mark Kelly’s (D) victory over incumbent Sen. Martha McSally (R), who was appointed in 2019 to fill the vacant position after the death of longtime Sen. John McCain (R). Kelly is also the husband of former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords, who was shot and almost died in a 2011 assassination attempt that saw six people killed.

Biden’s 60 Minutes Interview Horrifies White House: ‘Does NOT Reflect the OFFICIAL Position’

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
