Trump Campaign Spokesman Slams Fox News Over Early Arizona Call For Biden, Federalist reports.
Trump Campaign Communications Director Tim Murtaugh slammed the Fox News Decision Desk for calling Arizona early on Tuesday night for Biden, saying that it was too early to make that projection.
“It was a premature call,” Murtaugh said. “We were livid about the fact that you and then the AP made that call.”
“There are seven organizations that called states on election night, seven. Five of those seven did not make that call,” he added.
According to Murtaugh, the votes coming in from Arizona counties clearly show that the president “only trails by 93,000 votes” and only needs 57 percent of those remaining votes to “close the gap.” Murtaugh also noted that there are still 605,000 outstanding ballots waiting to be counted.
“I think that Arizona is clearly the most important,” Murtaugh said. “You are going to see the tightening of that race because we know what these votes are. They are late early-votes or Election Day drop-off votes.”
