Kingman, AZ | On Friday December 23rd, a judge in Mohave County, Arizona rejected a request to overturn the results of the election for attorney general and declare Abe Hamadeh the winner. The request was made by Tim La Sota, the lawyer for the unsuccessful Republican candidate. Judge Lee Jantzen said that there was not enough evidence to support the claim that the election was conducted illegally or incorrectly. Jantzen noted that out of around 2,300 ballots reviewed, there were only 14 ballots that raised some questions about whether the vote should have been counted. These ballots were reviewed by a panel of individuals from both major parties, who sought to determine the voter’s intent. However, Jantzen ruled that this was not enough to conclude that the panel had done anything wrong. The results of the race are still not official, as a recount is being conducted in all 15 counties due to the small margin of difference. The recount is expected to be completed this week. Hamadeh has expressed dissatisfaction with the ruling and has claimed that there are thousands of uncounted provisional ballots.
