Donald Trump Elections U.S. Senate

Trump Claims Arizona ‘Stole The Electron’ After Senate Race Is Called For Democrat

The Senate race between incumbent Democratic Sen. Mark Kelly and his Republican challenger, Blake Masters, was called Friday evening, with Kelly being declared the winner after 83% of the ballots had been counted.

NBC News reported:

Kelly’s projected victory on Friday comes three days after polls closed, and as Arizona officials continued counting ballots that were mailed or dropped off, particularly in the vote-rich Maricopa County, home to Phoenix. It gives Democrats 49 Senate seats, one short of securing a majority, with Nevada still counting votes and Georgia’s contest headed to a Dec. 6 runoff.

Masters, it should be noted, was enthusiastically endorsed by failed, one-term, twice-impeached former president Donald Trump.

As you’d expect, Trump was apoplectic after it became clear that Masters had failed to win. He took to his failing Truth Social social media site and demanded a new election be held.

“They stole the Electron from Blake Masters. Do Election over again!”

Stole the electron? What in the hell?

There were also these posts from the disgraced ex-president:

But it was the “electron” typo that drew the most attention and ridicule.
