    Your Content has retracted the Arizona win for presidential hopeful Joe Biden after prematurely calling the state following other major networks.

    The next release from a key Phoenix county where Trump was cutting into Biden’s lead, however, is not expected until Thursday evening.

    As of 1:30 p.m. Eastern time Thursday, CNN, NBC News, ABC News, CBS News, DecisionDesk HQ and Reuters had not called Arizona.

    The Associated Press stands by its call. Associated Press calls are displayed by hundreds of newspapers nationwide, as well as by Google. Sally Buzbee, executive editor of The A.P., said: “The Associated Press continues to watch and analyze vote count results from Arizona as they come in. We will follow the facts in all cases.”

    Trump leads Biden in North Carolina, with most ballots already counted. Biden would need to win about two-thirds of the remainder to pull ahead. Will accept mail-in ballots that arrive through Nov. 12.

    And in Georgia, Trump leads Biden. Election officials said that processing absentee ballots would continue throughout the day and into the evening if necessary
