In ATL, @ReporterBlayne: “There are about 200,000 outstanding votes still waiting to be counted, tabulated & scanned & vast majority of those are absentee ballots. The vast majority of those come from Fulton County & DeKalb county, counties we’re watching very closely.” #AMRstaff

12:20 PM: Not so fast. Trump campaigning eyeing Arizona/Pennsylvania victories to win re-election:
We remain confident on an Arizona win for Pres Trump.
Yuma County (SW corner), is 60% Hispanic, and Trump won there by 8% overall 53-45%.
Trump’s massive Latino surge may well solidify his re-election!#LatinosForTrump pic.twitter.com/o2ZLjbXGY5

Not so fast. The race has narrowed in #AZ considerably. 130,000 votes separate the candidates, with hundreds of thousands of votes yet to be counted, from all over the state. I’ll say it again: Let’s count the votes, and let the people decide rather than making declarations. https://t.co/1WYhjChrtm

11:35 AM: Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson speaking to voters:
Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson says during press briefing just now that she’s “optimistic” that full unofficial results will be ready by the end of the day.
— Riley Beggin (@rbeggin) November 4, 2020
Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson: “Ballots are still being counted in our largest jurisdictions.” Number of ballots out still exceeds the margin between the candidates. Hopes to have unofficial tally in next 24 hours. Current Biden lead is 29,525.
— Eric Crawford (@ericcrawford) November 4, 2020
Michigan Sec State Benson now saying she expects unofficial results within 24 hours.
Why didn’t they count mail ballots earlier? Because the state legislature blocked repeated requests from the state government to do exactly that, she says.

After recount in 2011 race for WI Supreme Court, there was a swing of 300 votes. After recount in 2016 Presidential race in WI, @realDonaldTrump numbers went up by 131.
As I said, 20,000 is a high hurdle. #Election2020 https://t.co/CEr82eiCWH

10:50 AM: Trump campaign thinks Arizona still in play:
Trump campaign officials telling reporters.. they trust their data and Gov. Ducey’s data more than “anyone hanging out in Washington DC or New York”…They argue they can win still the state by claiming their margin could end up with 30K votes for the president.
— Kelly O’Donnell (@KellyO) November 4, 2020
10:38 AM: PA Gov. thinks they won’t finish counting votes (apparently around 2.5-3 million mail-in ballots) by today:
Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf: “Make no mistake: our democracy is being tested in this election. This is a stress test of the ideas upon which this country was founded. The basic rule of one person, one vote — that still carries, and it has to carry here.”
— Julian Routh (@julianrouth) November 4, 2020

NEW: Biden campaign manager @jomalleydillon says “we expect that at some point later today that the vice president will address the American people.”

How come every time they count Mail-In ballot dumps they are so devastating in their percentage and power of destruction?
