"Election officials in Maricopa and Pima counties are being allowed to play by a different set of rules than the rest of the state, being granted special permission to personally follow up with voters whose signatures on their ballots don't match the signature on their voter registration forms", National Republican Senatorial Committee spokesman Calvin Moore said.

On Thursday, Democrat Kyrsten Sinema jumped into a slight lead over Republican Martha McSally in the midst of the slow vote count.

It wasn't immediately clear what Trump was referring to, but he had complained earlier Friday that votes for Democrats were coming "out of the wilderness" in the Grand Canyon State as midterm election votes are counted.

Depending on the outcome of the remaining three races, Republicans could hold as many as 54 seats, while Democrats could have as many as 49.

"Just out - in Arizona, SIGNATURES DON'T MATCH".

"Law Enforcement is looking into another big corruption scandal having to do with Election Fraud in #Broward and Palm Beach".

Many other counties only allow voters to cure until polls close on Election Day. Spencer said that means less than 10,000 in all. After that, there are a handful of areas favorable to Congressman McSally that will come in so the question will be whether Sinema will have built up enough of a lead to withstand the votes that will end up going in McSally's favor at that point.

In 2012, she lost her first run at the U.S. House by 1,400 votes nearly two weeks after the election.

The political overtones of the lawsuit were unmistakable.

Four Arizona Republican parties are suing to stop the state's board of elections from counting votes from Tuesday's Senate race. Her lead came from the two counties singled out by Republicans in their lawsuit, Maricopa and Pima counties. In this case, election officials can contact them to resolve the issue. Almost all are in Maricopa [County]. On the final two days of early voting - November 1 and November 2 - Democrats turned in ballots at the same clip as Republicans, an unheard dynamic of in the traditionally GOP county. "I will continue fighting until every ballot is counted", she said.

On Friday, the Arizona Republican Chairman Jonathan Lines flat-out said that the Maricopa County recorder, Democrat Adrian Fontes, "cannot be trusted to administer elections in Arizona".

"I think we're on the right track in Arizona", Gardner said.

On Friday, Arizona Republicans agreed to settle a lawsuit regarding the handling of fixing any discrepancies with mail-in ballots.
