Arizona governor certifies Biden's win

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey (R) on Monday certified the state's general election results, officially solidifying President-elect Joe Biden's presidential win and Democrat Mark Kelly's Senate victory over incumbent Sen. Martha McSally (R-Ariz.).

The certification was expected, but Arizona was one of the tightly-contested states President Trump's campaign has focused on amid its efforts to overturn the election results, despite being unable to provide any evidence of widespread voter fraud.

Ducey alluded to those allegations, stating "we do elections well here in Arizona. The system is strong." Arizona's Secretary of State Katie Hobbs also defended the voting process. "This election was conducted with transparency, accuracy, and fairness in accordance with Arizona's laws and election procedures — despite numerous unfounded claims to the contrary," she said.
