“Listen, this whole thing is ridiculous, to be honest. It’s ridiculous. And it also comes from an Arizona state party that refused to be revised on its own by the votes cast in its own party communications,” Cindy McCain said.
“The election is over. [President] Biden won, “she added.” I know that many of them do not like the result, but, you know, elections have consequences. So … that doesn’t surprise me, you know, things are just weird and crazy right now about the election. “
In April, it was announced that the Arizona State Senate had hired a security consulting firm, Cyber Ninjas, to lead a judicial review of votes in Maricopa County. Biden won Maricopa County, eventually turning Arizona over and winning his 11 electoral votes.
Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbes (D) also criticized the audit as “such a farce” and called for it to end.
“A group of Republicans are still trying to reassure their base, which refuses to accept this … Trump has lost Arizona and is no longer president,” Hobbes said as he appeared on CNN last week.
Tapper also asked Cindy McCain for reports that she had been screened for Biden’s candidacy for US ambassador to the UN World Food Program, asking if she would accept the nomination.
“I’m proud of the work I’ve done for the president. You know, I was grateful that I was able to support him and be part of the campaign. So I will … in any way he sees fit, I would be proud and with the honor of serving, “she said.
