Mark Finchem lost his bid for Arizona secretary of state for two reasons. The first was that he ran a bad campaign, the second was because he rejected the legitimacy of President Biden’s win. He filed a lawsuit alleging voter fraud, which relies on technical complaints and innuendo to overturn the election results. The top three statewide races in Arizona closely matched late polling from Siena College and the New York Times. Sen. Mark Kelly (D) defeated Blake Masters by about 5 points, compared to a 4-point margin in the poll. Finchem’s lawsuit suggests that Hobbs’ warning to counties was somehow an abuse of power.
