Biden Lead in Arizona Narrows but Few Ballots Remain

Demo­c­ra­t­ic pres­i­den­tial nom­i­nee Joe Biden’s lead in Ari­zona con­tin­ued shrink­ing on Wednes­day with the lat­est batch of bal­lots added to the state’s unof­fi­cial results, but the trend line is not in Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s favor, Arizona’s attor­ney gen­er­al said.

Biden’s lead dwin­dled to 11,635, a drop of 1,178 from Tues­day, with 13,362 more votes count­ed from Mari­co­pa Coun­ty, which holds about two-thirds of the state’s population.

That’s a lead of 0.4 per­cent, approach­ing the 0.1 per­cent mar­gin that trig­gers an auto­mat­ic recount.

The office of Sec­re­tary of State Katie Hobbs, a Demo­c­rat, says few­er than 25,000 votes remain to be count­ed. Mari­co­pa Coun­ty offi­cials say there are about 6,700 bal­lots left to tab­u­late there.

The Asso­ci­at­ed Press and Fox News have called the state for Biden, a pro­jec­tion Deci­sion Desk joined on Wednesday.

But Trump’s cam­paign has main­tained con­fi­dence in win­ning Ari­zona when all the votes are counted.
