But President Trump will need to do better than this to catch Biden as counting resumes tomorrow:

Biden: 31,433 (43.6%)
Trump: 38,388 (53.4%)

It’s estimated that President Trump needs to win 58% of the remaining votes to win the state:
Breaking: big move for Trump in #Arizona:
72,000 more votes counted, and Trump wins 55% of them, cutting Biden's lead in AZ to 29,861.
Trump advisor tells us POTUS still believes he can win AZ.
But he needs to win 58% of remaining votes there & he's falling short.
