The Arizona Supreme Court confirmed Monday it will be reviewing an appeal by the Arizona Republican Party challenging the election results in the Phoenix metro area.
KTAR-FM reported that Arizona GOP Chairwoman Kelli Ward filed an appeal to the state’s high court Friday after Maricopa Superior Court Judge Randall Warner ruled the party failed to prove fraud had occurred in the state’s most populous county that would reverse the results of November’s election.
Democratic Joe Biden’s current lead in the Grand Canyon State is currently 10,457 votes.
On Thursday, Ward told KFYI-AM radio that Warner granted the campaign access to check for “red flag” issues among the 1.9 million ballots that came in absentee, as well as the duplicate ballots filled out by election officials in Maricopa County (which includes Phoenix) when the original ballots could not be read by the voting machine.
