Good morning and we still don’t have a result in the presidential election.
Here’s where things stand. . .
Biden has taken the lead:

We can expect a challenge from the Trump campaign:
2. The Trump lawyers are gathering witnesses and affidavits as I write. And apparently there’s a very serious level of fraud in Philadelphia and other areas.https://t.co/FcoOdCfS1K

Biden continues to hold the lead but the Trump campaign is filing suit over thousands of mail-in ballots from people who have moved out of state:

Trump cut into Biden’s lead last night:
Coconino county posted 5,713 ballots. Breakdown:
Biden: 2,953 (51.7%)
Trump: 2,568 (45%)
Coconino is a liberal county, home to Navajo Nation tribal land and Flagstaff. (also, the Grand Canyon from the postcards.)
Trump is now trailing Biden by 47,052 ballots in the state.

And they won’t be done counting until the weekend:
#NEW: According to NBC News Correspondent @GadiNBC, he says #Arizona election officials told him the final ballot count result in Maricopa County probably won't come tomorrow, and it could be "this weekend."

Biden took the lead last night. . .
Latest results from Georgia as of 6:10 a.m. ET Friday (99% in):
• Biden: 2,449,580 (leads by 1,096)
• Trump: 2,448,484

. . .but there are still some outstanding provisional, military and overseas ballots to go:
PSA: There's more missing GA vote out than just absentees. It's also unreturned overseas military (small) and an unknown number of provisional ballots. The e-day vote in GA was heavily Republican. It won't be over when Biden takes the lead. https://t.co/aKPwLuWzcD

It’s not clear how many of them will be returned by the deadline, however:
I think there's some confusion, at least in my replies, over military/overseas vote in GA.
Most of these votes are already counted. However, they can still arrive until tmro; 9k were sent out but weren't returned. These late arriving ballots are what's potentially left
