By Ronald J. Hansen | Arizona Republic

Arizona’s two most conservative members of Congress continued Tuesday to baselessly claim the presidential election was stolen for Democrat Joe Biden in swing states across the country, though they were slightly more measured in their critique of their home state.

Republican Reps. Andy Biggs and Paul Gosar are among the most outspoken voices on Capitol Hill still claiming fraud two weeks after voting ended and President Donald Trump lost by more than 5 million votes and lost the electoral college by the same margin he won by four years ago.

Aided by a video from the Arizona Republican Party that touts misleading and debunked allegations in other states, Biggs and Gosar continued to push for a complete audit of Maricopa County’s tabulations and said — falsely — other states included widespread votes from the dead and machine glitches intended to steal the election.

Election officials across the country have brushed aside the issues raised by Trump, his legal team in cases across the country, and by Biggs and Gosar. There is no credible evidence that fraud tipped the election to Biden, a former vice president.
