The Republican-controlled Cochise County action followed a judge’s order to the board of supervisors.
Two GOP-controlled counties in the state have voted to certify but six others are holdouts.
A federal judge, appointed by outgoing president Donald Trump, ruled against an effort by some Republicans to give Pence unwarranted power to shift the outcome of the election but the division within Republicans continues to affect the party.
With “official” certification of the votes in the state with the most votes and electors in America, California put the certified electoral count over the threshold of victory for Joe Biden over the still whining Donald Trump.
The unanimous decision by a panel appointed by GOP presidents, including Trump, will be appealed to the Supreme Court, his lawyers promise.
Trump tried to persuade GOP board members of the state certification board to join his fantasy claim of election fraud. They didn’t.
They changed their minds again, saying “we deserve better.” Maybe the board they serve deserves better than them.
After Republicans tried another last-minute attempt to bock election results in Detroit, they backtracked and certified the results.
