PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) — Ken Bennett, the liaison for the state Senate's partisan election review, is now taking heat from his own party after his testimony on Thursday before a congressional committee. Part of his testimony included stating the obvious, that President Joe Biden was the legitimate winner of the 2020 election.

But state Sen. Wendy Rogers, a Republican from Flagstaff, slammed Bennett on Twitter for testifying that the unprecedented election review was never about overturning the election. "If that is what she believes and if that is what she is promoting, I think she is being disingenuous and misleading people," said Bennett, who is also a Republican.

Republican Senate President Karen Fann has said for months that the audit was not about changing the outcome of the election. But some moneymen, who are linked closely to former President Trump and who funded the multi-million dollar partisan review, have said otherwise.
