(CNN)Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs on Monday criticized the ongoing Republican election audit of the 2020 ballots from Arizona's largest county as a political stunt, calling it a "farce" and saying it should end.

Trump lost Arizona and that he's not the president anymore," Hobbs told CNN's Chris Cuomo on "Cuomo Prime Time. "

Last week, Maricopa County handed over nearly 2. 1 million ballots and nearly 400 tabulation machines to the state Senate after Republican lawmakers subpoenaed the materials and a judge ruled that county officials had to comply.

In a last-ditch effort to block the controversial audit, the Arizona Democratic Party and the lone Democrat serving on the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors, which oversees elections, sued to halt the count Thursday evening.

And journalists who want to report on the endeavor are allowed to do so only if they agree to participate as election observers, and will be barred from taking notes or video.

The partisan audit, which could stretch for roughly two months, comes after county election officials conducted two audits and found no evidence of widespread voter fraud and other issues.

Hobbs already certified the election results showing that President Joe Biden narrowly won the state.
