Arizona To Certify Election Results Monday

Source: KJZZ Bews

Arizona’s election results will become official Monday as Secretary of State Katie Hobbs plans to certify the results at 11 a.m.

This will officially award Arizona’s 11 electoral votes to former Vice President Joe Biden. The final tally shows Biden received about 10,500 more votes than President Donald Trump in Arizona. State law allows the president to challenge results within five days, but federal law says any legal challenges must be resolved by Dec. 8.

Gov. Doug Ducey, Attorney General Mark Brnovich and Chief Justice Robert Brutinel will join Hobbs for Monday’s ceremony, which will be livestreamed at the website here.

All states must certify their results before the Electoral College meets on Dec. 14. Florida is the only one of the four most populous states to certify so far, with California, Texas and New York scheduled to certify their results early in December.

Congressional Hispanics want Lujan Grisham at HHS

Source: Axios

Hispanic lawmakers are openly lobbying to have New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham be named Health and Human Services secretary, according to a letter obtained by Axios.

Why it matters: These members are now following the example some Black lawmakers have used for weeks: trying to convince Joe Biden his political interests will be served by rewarding certain demographic groups with Cabinet picks.

The big picture: Biden is weighing Lujan Grisham, who he considered as his vice presidential running mate, along with Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo for the critical post.

The next HHS secretary will not only have to tackle the coronavirus crisis but reconfigure the Affordable Care Act, which the Trump administration has attempted to dismantle.

GETTYSBURG – At the request of Senator Doug Mastriano (R-Adams/Cumberland/Franklin/York), the Senate Majority Policy Committee will hold a hearing to discuss recent issues regarding the 2020 General Election in Pennsylvania.

“Elections are a fundamental principle of our democracy – unfortunately, Pennsylvanians have lost faith in the electoral system. It is unacceptable,” said Mastriano. “Over the past few weeks, I have heard from thousands of Pennsylvanians regarding issues experienced at the polls, irregularities with the mail-in voting system and concerns whether their vote was counted. We need to correct these issues to restore faith in our republic.”

“We want assurance that the issues encountered during this past election don’t happen again in the future,” said Majority Policy Committee Chair Senator David G. Argall. “Senator Mastriano requested this meeting because Pennsylvanians deserve a fair election.”

The hearing will take place on Wednesday, November 25 at 12:30 p.m. at the Wyndham Hotel in Gettysburg. The public is invited to watch the event live on the Majority Policy Committee’s website.

The Inside Story of Michigan's Fake Voter Fraud Scandal

Politico

That’s right. In the end, it wasn’t a senator or a judge or a general who stood up to the leader of the free world. There was no dramatic, made-for-Hollywood collision of cosmic egos. Rather, the death knell of Trump’s presidency was sounded by a baby-faced lawyer, looking over his glasses on a grainy Zoom feed on a gloomy Monday afternoon, reading from a statement that reflected a courage and moral clarity that has gone AWOL from his party, pleading with the tens of thousands of people watching online to understand that some lines can never be uncrossed.

“We must not attempt to exercise power we simply don’t have,” declared Van Langevelde, a member of Michigan’s board of state canvassers, the ministerial body with sole authority to make official Joe Biden’s victory over Trump. “As John Adams once said, 'We are a government of laws, not men.' This board needs to adhere to that principle here today. This board must do its part to uphold the rule of law and comply with our legal duty to certify this election.”

Van Langevelde is a Republican. He works for Republicans in the Statehouse. He gives legal guidance to advance Republican causes and win Republican campaigns. As a Republican, his mandate for Monday’s hearing—handed down from the state party chair, the national party chair and the president himself—was straightforward. They wanted Michigan’s board of canvassers to delay certification of Biden’s victory. Never mind that Trump lost by more than 154,000 votes, or that results were already certified in all 83 counties. The plan was to drag things out, to further muddy the election waters and delegitimize the process, to force the courts to take unprecedented actions that would forever taint Michigan’s process of certifying elections. Not because it was going to help Trump win but because it was going to help Trump cope with a loss. The president was not accepting defeat. That meant no Republican with career ambitions could accept it, either.
