Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs told CNBC that “there is absolutely no value for any claims about common voter fraud in Arizona”, as Maricopa County polls continued to count the votes.
With vote counting still underway in several battlefield states, President Donald Trump accused Democrats of trying to steal the election without proof. Trump’s campaign has filed lawsuits in several states regarding the counting of votes. A crowd of protesters claimed the ballot was stolen by Trump as they gathered outside a counting center in Maricopa County on Wednesday night. The ballots in turn cannot be scanned and counted.
Hobbs told host Shepard Smith that the president̵7;s comments on voter fraud “made our job harder.”
Hobbs said in a Thursday night interview on “The News with Shepard Smith” there was no evidence to back it up and it was not something we went through here.
Hobbs added that her state’s pollsters are employees hired by the counties, and are required to abide by election laws. According to NBC News, Arizona is still too close to call. Hobbs says Maricopa County hopes to test the majority of its ballots by the end of the week.
