"Our poll in Arizona was beautiful," fired Fox News editor tells Jan. 6 panel
Former Fox News political editor Chris Stirewalt on Thursday defended his decision to call Arizona for now-President Biden on election night 2020.
What it matters: Fox becoming the first political desk to make the call for the state angered former President Trump and his supporters and was a pivotal moment that all but confirmed the then-president would lose re-election.
What he's saying: "We knew it would be a consequential call...because it was one of five states we were watching. …. Trump’s chances were very small and getting smaller..." Stirewalt told the committee.
