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.

Sara Carter joined Sean Hannity to discuss the classified documents being found in multiple places of both work and residence of Joe Biden from his time in the Obama administration. Carter states “One of the big questions from the House Judiciary Committee is how did President Joe Biden’s legal team stumble upon the classified documents that were found at Biden’s former office at the Penn Biden Center.”

“Why hasn’t the FBI been vocal and transparent about the fact that they searched that office and found the classified documents on November 2nd” Carter questions. Additionally, they have not yet “disclosed to the House Committees whether or not they had searched the house in Delaware or Rehoboth Beach to the full extent,” says Carter who noted the committees wanted the information by January 27th.

Carter spoke to sources who told her they will be serving subpoenas to “personnel from the Department of Justice because Attorney General Merrick Garland has refused to answer specific questions they sent to him on January 13th.”
