PHOENIX (AP) — A draft report of the election review in Arizona’s largest county by supporters of former President Donald Trump found that President Joe Biden did indeed win the 2020 presidential contest there, an embarrassing end to a bizarre quest to find evidence supporting Trump’s false claim that he lost because of fraud.
The final report was scheduled to be released Friday afternoon, the result of a months-long partisan review funded in part by taxpayers.

The tally in the draft document showed a net gain of 360 votes for Biden over the official results.
