Former President Trump endorsed Rep. Mark Finchem (R) for Arizona secretary of state, lauding him as a hero and a patriot for leading the fight against election fraud as well on many other issues.

In a statement endorsing Finchem, Trump specifically touted the state lawmaker as a supporter of his agenda.

“Mark was willing to say what few others had the courage to say. In addition to his incredibly powerful stance on the massive Voter Fraud that took place in the 2020 Presidential Election Scam, he is strong on Crime, Borders, our currently under siege Second Amendment, and loves our Military and our Vets. Mark will also be fighting hard for further Tax and Regulation Cuts,” Trump said.

“Mark Finchem has my Complete and Total Endorsement. He will never let the people of Arizona down!” Trump added.

Finchem has focused much of his campaign on restoring election integrity, with a statement on his website’s homepage stating that he “knew something was very wrong with our elections process.”

“Since my very first election, I knew something was very wrong with our elections process. Major defects such as chain-of-custody of ballots, hidden contributions, and expensive unnecessary technology have contributed to the decay of public confidence in our elections. Then on November 3rd, 2020, the unthinkable happened: Americans witnessed real-time reallocation of votes from one candidate to another, broadcast on national television.”

Mark Finchem has also backed lawsuits filed in Arizona by the Trump campaign and the Republican National Committee alleging election fraud after the 2020 election.

“Thank you, President Trump for your endorsement. You are leading the way on restoring election integrity. I am truly honored to be recognized for the hard work I put in and will continue to do to restore the integrity of our elections,” Finchem said in a tweet thanking Trump for his support. 

In the Republican primary, Finchem will face at least three other candidates, while in the Democratic primary, he will face state Rep. Reginald Bolding and Marine veteran Adrian Fontes. Katie Hobbs, Arizona’s current Democratic secretary of state, is running for the state’s open governorship in 2022.


Rep. Finchem joined Steve Bannon on September 10th for an interview on War Room Pandemic. In the interview, he talks about the upcoming four-volume Arizona Audit Report, the independent voter canvass, and the validity of its results. Watch the interview below:


Mark Finchem is calling for the decertification of Arizona’s electors, alongside State Senator Wendy Rogers (R).

Finchem’s declaration comes after Liz Harris, a Republican grassroots organizer, spoke to host Steve Bannon on “War Room” Wednesday, disclosing voting discrepancies in Maricopa County, which was conducted through canvasing. She released a report of the audit on Tuesday.

“An estimated 173,104 votes are missing or lost, as reported to our volunteers who went door to door verifying registration and voting information for thousands of residents. These are American citizens living in Maricopa County who cast a vote, primarily by mail, in the election and yet there is no record of their vote with the county and it was not counted in the reported vote totals for the election,” according to the canvass report.

“Additionally an estimated 96,389 mail-in votes were cast under the names of registered voters who were either unknown to the residents of the registration address or who were verified as having moved away prior to October 2020″, the report states.
