The certification of ballots in Arizona will take place Monday, Nov. 30. — officially marking the end to the 2020 election season here.

Both the Democratic and Republican parties can claim success.

President-elect Joe Biden won the state, becoming only the third Democratic presidential nominee to do that since World War Two. U.S. Senator-elect Mark Kelly will give Arizona a pair of Democrats in the Senate for the first time in about 70 years.

On the GOP side, the party maintained legislative majorities and did well with Maricopa County offices — including reclaiming the recorder’s office from incumbent Adrian Fontes.

Democratic Party Chair Felecia Rotellini has decided to leave the position, while Kelli Ward, for now, remains Republican party chair.

For more about party leadership and its significance — or not — these days, The Show spoke with Chuck Coughlin, president and CEO of HighGround.
