Arizona Republicans met Monday to cast an alternate slate of electors with state GOP Chairwoman Kelli Ward saying the move has “historic precedent.”

The Republican electors cast their 11 electoral votes for President Donald Trump, in opposition to the official electoral votes cast the same day for Democrat Joe Biden, who was declared president-elect with 306 official electoral votes.

The electoral votes of all 50 states and the District of Columbia will be opened at a joint meeting of Congress on Jan. 6, where they will be officially certified. The Republicans in Arizona contend their electors should be counted as “true,” according to Ward, and the states 11 votes counted for Trump.
