President Donald Trump made up more ground on President-elect Joe Biden in Arizona on Sunday.

Biden led Trump by nearly 17,000 votes as of Sunday evening.

The Secretary of State’s Office reported that roughly 77,000 ballots remained uncounted as of that time.

4:21 p.m.

President-elect Joe Biden grew his lead slightly over President Donald Trump in Arizona.

Biden garnered roughly 750 more votes than Trump among the 7,001 ballots released by Maricopa County election officials on Sunday afternoon.

That makes it less likely that enough of the remaining ballots will include votes for Trump and the president can surpass Biden lead, which rose to 20,102 votes statewide.

Trump, however, has refused to concede, and his legal team is pursuing lawsuit in Arizona and other states alleging improprieties with vote counts.

The Arizona Secretary of State’s Office estimates there are less than 94,000 ballots left to count statewide.
