Arizona’s 11 electors vote for Democrat Joe Biden for president

U.S. President-elect Joe Biden announces members of his administration in Wilmington, Delaware

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Arizona’s 11 electors voted for Democrat Joe Biden for president on Monday, confirming the president-elect’s victory in the Southwestern state in the 2020 U.S. presidential election, according to a spokesperson for the secretary of state.

The Arizona Republican Party had challenged the ballot count in the battleground state’s most populous county, arguing that it had been conducted in a manner that violated Arizona law, but a state court judge threw out the lawsuit.
