The Arizona audit shows, again, that the former President lost Arizona.
He also lost the swing states of WI, MI, PA and GA. He lost the popular vote by millions and millions of votes.
The election was not stolen. Trump got his ass kicked. And that’s the truth. https://t.co/7t7lhqCfdR

There is no basis in law for a "forensic audit" of a certified election; nor established standards on what constitutes a "forensic audit" of a certified election; nor established procedures for conducting a "forensic audit" of a certified election. Everything else is just bogus. https://t.co/3Uu8uAx7k4

A gross abuse of power. Trump demands an audit and Abbott’s appointee immediately announces a bogus one—with no evidence of fraud.
Abbott is so afraid of losing his primary that he’s governing our state based on the whims and lies of Donald Trump. https://t.co/QAAGoOkDfm
