Joe Biden Becomes First Democrat To Win Maricopa County Arizona From Truman

President-elect Joe Biden has won Arizona according to news outlets, marking a historic shift in a state long considered a Republican stronghold.

On election night, Biden was projected as winner by The Associated Press and Fox News. However, this was followed by pushback from the campaign of President Donald Trump saying that those calls were premature.

However, on Thursday, the New York Times, CNN, ABC News, CBS News, Reuters and NBC News followed suit, calling the race for the president-elect, who holds a lead in the state of 49.4 percent compared with President Donald Trump‘s 49.1 percent.

It makes Biden the first Democrat to win the Grand Canyon State since Bill Clinton in 1996 and only the second from his party to win since World War Two.

Fast-growing Maricopa County was key to Biden’s victory, which is home to Phoenix and around 60 percent of the state’s population. His appeal was boosted in part by a shifting demographic that has seen an increase in Latino voters.
