and this is a non-story because they are automatic recounts for close elections as required by statute.

Let's not imply this is in any way like TFG's multiple recounts and audits. It ain't.
 
2022-12-07 11:15:12 AM  
well, except is mandated by law given how close the races were.  the AG race (both candidates unqualified IMO) was once candidate (Mayes) won 510 votes over more than 2.5 million cast (.02 percentage points).

Mayes has never litigated a case ("welp, she kinda did, in a way", was her campaign's response).  She was an academic, then on one of the state's regulatory boards, which her campaign said, "is kinda like litigation."  Hamadeh has but apparently just misdemeanors and was the coffee boy on felony cases.  insane that these two were the best each party could get.

Booo for a video story. Some of us just want to read the facts quickly.

There is nothing wrong with automatic and legal recounts, or with recounts as prescribed in law paid for by campaigns. When the totals are close, its great to make sure everything goes right and that's why we have policies and procedures for this.
 
2022-12-07 1:53:55 PM  
They widened the recount margin and the law took effect just last year 🤔

After the Fraudit too.
 
2022-12-07 1:55:01 PM  
As long as the campaigns pay for it, they can waste however much cash they want. State taxes better not be paying for any of it though.

Can't watch the video at work. Is one of them Kari Lake? I thought she was told to pound sand and Hobbs was already certified.

guys it's ok whoever got the most votes will win and they will look all silly after

Have Dark Brandon tell AZ to stop the recount or he nukes them.

Problem solved.

If it's like Mass., the state does pay, but only if it's really close.  Otherwise, the candidate challenging has to pay.

All of which is fine by me, personally.

/here, it sounds like the former, without more details

Flagstaff's an anomaly in Arizona. It's almost 7,000 feet above sea level. It's basically a town on a mountain peak.

I'm just saying it's at a high elevation so it gets colder than most of the other major cities in AZ

100 miles from Flagstaff and 5600' here.

And Flagstaff is at the base of a 12,600' mountain.

Both are true. As in, this thread is about  the automatic recounts triggered when the vote is genuinely very close. This has nothing to do with the dingbat horsefart donkey smells that Kari Lake is putting out. She lost big time and she's way past the deadline to submit any hard evidence of fraud.

Moose out front: Flagstaff's an anomaly in Arizona. It's almost 7,000 feet above sea level. It's basically a town on a mountain peak.


yeah,   the upper right third of the state is above 4,000' elevation, and in some parts, upwards of 6,000.  massive pine forests.

hell Tucson is the anomaly.  the city is about 1800 elevation, but ringed by mountains that range to 5,000 to about 9,000.  the city itself gets snow and every winter, the mountains will get snowcapped.  my wife was in Tucson last winter and sent me a surreal picture of her standing by saguaros, covered in snow.

i love FLG.  went to NAU for two years but those two years were the driest bakc to back winters in like 30 years.  we got a few blizzards but they'd never stick.  one easter we got like, 4' of snow and two days later it was all gone.
 
2022-12-07 2:49:05 PM  
So 1-3 inches predicted in Minnesota where I'm at, but unfortunately, Minnesotans have lost all ability to drive in the snow over the past decade or so.

The average driver, when faced with roads that are covered in white stuff, and a brake pedal that shudders every time it's pressed, will never figure out what these cryptic signs and portents mean.

Tis a mystery for the ages.

To be pedantic, Tucson's official elevation closer to 2,400, but it's definitely heading up most every direction except going NW toward Phoenix.  It's 3,100 at my house at the extreme SE end of Tucson near Vail and down around 2,000 in Marana at the NW end of the Tucson metro area.  There is skiing on Mt. Lemmon when conditions permit and it tops out at 9,171.  Not even an hour from my house.

yeah, we used to drive there to play in the snow (grew up between Phoenix and Tucson).

i was just in Bisbee a couple of motnhs ago for the "Bisbee 1000".  it was awesome.  (5.1 miles over 7 staircases, over a thousand steps total. it raiend like hell.  miserable but fun.  we already reserved our spot for next year.)

Weirdest thing about the southwest for somebody who grew up in Indiana with family in Michigan is how quickly you can drive to different weather.  Flagstaff is only about two hours up the road from Phoenix, but the difference in altitude means there's ski resorts and they deal with multiple feet of snow.  And as others have pointed out, there's even ski resorts south of Phoenix, which made me do a double-take the first time I noticed it.

You'd be in the car for a lot longer than an hour or two in the midwest if you wanted to drive to someplace where it was 30 degrees warmer or cooler.

On the other hand, you don't have to drive very far in the midwest to stop seeing Kari Lake signs, so you've got that going for you.

I oversold myself. I was more  67-68.. so we were about 4-5 mins apart.

It was basically my first time to visit
I went when I was 4 but I have no memory of it. Fun  town.  Would love to spend a full day there at least.

Yeah.  I had been looking for places to move (especially with Arizona turning bluer) and I had looked up Flagstaff.

Really nice and pleasant weather.  Very similar to the pacific coast.  Cool nights in the summer, not super cold in the winter, though I still can get snow in the winter (a lot of it.  It's one of the snowiest cities in the entire country)

But... yeah, it's literally just a city on a mountain peak.  Immediately as soon as you leave the city limits and go to the suburbs?  Normal hot-ass Arizona weather.

Well, a bunch of other commenters jumped all over me for my flippant "town on a mountain peak" comment, so before they get to you too, Flagstaff's actually at the base of a mountain, but it's still at a very high elevation, thus the cooler climate. Also, Flagstaff's suburbs are mostly all high elevation too. It's Phoenix that really gets the brutally hot weather. Though I live in Tucson and the summers are plenty hot and long here too.
