This election has been like none other. Of course, these past four years have been like none other, too, but that is about to change. Finally, America is going to get her dignity back after riding in the Donald Trump clown car racing in circles.

Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs (D) went on CNN Wednesday and said, much to the relief of many that this president has no “legal pathway” to sue her state regarding its vote-counting process.

Trump went off script a little after 2:00 a.m. Wednesday morning. He declared himself king of America and vowed to issue a lawsuit in every state that bucked his wishes. Apparently, he never met Arizona, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, because they are not pushovers — no matter how hard Trump tried to bully them. They are standing firm against POTUS as they are apparently leading Joe Biden and Senator Kamala Harris over the 270 vote Electoral College victory line.

The president’s campaign announced it planned to sue Michigan and Pennsylvania to halt their ballot counting. These are two of the most important states in the 2020 presidential race. Trump also declared his campaign would demand a recount in Wisconsin. The reason? His attorney referred to vague “irregularities:”

‘IMPORTANT: If you voted a regular ballot in-person, your ballot will be counted, no matter what kind of pen you used (even a Sharpie)! 1/’

‘Voters who received an early ballot in the mail but chose to instead vote in-person will see their early ballot status as “Canceled” on their Ballot-by-Mail/Early Ballot Status update. This is because the early ballot is canceled so the ballot cast-in person can be counted. 2/’

Secretary Hobbs said that Trump could not create a “legal pathway:”

‘They don’t have a legal pathway to challenge. We are legally counting valid ballots, and there’s not a way to stop that.’

Arizona has been projected to go into Biden’s column, even though the secretary considers there are about 600,000 ballots left to count. The reason is that out of those ballots, 400,000 are from Maricopa County, which is a metropolitan county leaning toward the Democrats. In addition, most of these were dropped off the day before or the day of the election, which again favors Biden.

She said that counting every last ballot was never going to happen on Election Day alone:

”We’ve said from day one that this is going to take time. We want to do it right. We want to make sure that every vote is counted. [It was] never going to happen.’

Part of the problem is that one of the states could not count mail ballots according to state law until it had fully counted the in-person votes. In Pennsylvania, as in other states, the in-person votes favored Trump, while that mail-in ballots have favored the Biden-Harris ticket.

Trump’s people have been assured in their belief that he would be able to overcome 100,000-lead in Arizona. This state has not elected a Democratic president since 1996.

The Associated Press called the state for Biden.

Like other states, Arizona requires an automatic recount should the difference between the candidate is equal to or less than 0.1 percent paid for by the government. However, at this time, Biden has a three-point lead.

Biden’s Campaign Manager Jen O’Malley Dillion announced that the Biden Fight Fund is raising funds to go up against Trump in the “biggest and most comprehensive legal effort ever assembled” against them.
