Newsmax is naming Joe Biden the winner of Arizona and Wisconsin, now that both states certified election results Monday showing he defeated President Donald Trump in the Nov. 3 election.

Arizona accounts for 11 electoral college votes. Biden is only the second Democrat in 70 years to win Arizona. 

In the final tally, Biden won by 10,457 votes, 0.3 percent of the nearly 3.4 million ballots cast. Eleven Democratic electors will meet Dec. 14 to formally pledge Arizona’s electoral votes to Biden.

As for Wisconsin, with its 10 electoral votes hanging in the balance, Biden's victory there was confirmed Monday following a partial recount that only added to his 20,600-vote margin over Trump.

The president has promised to file a lawsuit seeking to undo the results.

After the election, Newsmax was the only major news organization not to call several states for Biden, recognizing that one of the contestants, President Trump, was seeking recounts with results as close as 1% or less.

These states also included Georgia, Michigan, Nevada and Pennsylvania. Newsmax stated it would call those states after recounts and based on state certifications, and did so.

Newsmax has not called the presidential race itself, but expects to make a determination shortly after reviewing legal challenges by the Trump campaign and before the Electoral College meets in mid-December.
