Joseph R. Biden faced fresh doubts Wednesday over whether he should have been declared the official winner in Arizona in the 2020 presidential race.

The state continued to count in-person Election Day voters that had up until this point favored President Trump — giving him a shot of catching Mr. Biden, who built a lead off the early vote tallies.

“Trump ain’t finished in Arizona until more ballots get counted — he’s still in the hunt,” said Mike Noble, of OH Predictive Insights, an Arizona polling firm.

The Associated Press declared Mr. Biden the winner early Wednesday morning.

Trump senior campaign adviser Jason Miller predicted victory, saying thousands of ballots from pro-Trump rural areas of the state had yet to be counted

“We believe President Trump will win [by] around 30,000 votes,” Mr. Miller said

If the result flips, it would narrow Mr. Biden’s chances of winning the electoral college.

The latest tally on the Arizona Secretary of State’s website showed Mr. Biden with a 93,000 vote lead with 99% of the precincts reporting.
