PHOENIX — An attorney representing the Republican-controlled Arizona Senate says the long-delayed review of 2020 election results in the state’s most populous county will be released next week.

Attorney Kory Langhofer told a judge Thursday that the reports detailing the outside recount of President Joe Biden’s win and the unprecedented review of Maricopa County’s elections procedures, voting machines, and related computers will be made public on Sept. 24.

The Republican-backed Senate's outside review was prompted by former President Donald Trump's unfounded claims that he lost in Arizona and other battleground states because of fraud.

Senate Communications Staff confirmed to ABC 15 that Doug Logan, the leader of the election review will be making a presentation of his findings that will be open to the public at 1 p.m. next Friday in the senate chambers.

Senate President Karen Fann and Judiciary chairman Warren Petersen will be presiding over the event. Both Republican and Democratic state senators are also invited to attend although since it is not an official hearing it is not expected that other senators will have the opportunity to question Logan.

Fann held a similar hearing on July 16 to get an update on the audit but no Democratic members of the legislature chose to take part in it.
