Arizona Senate Race Decided

Democratic Rep. Kyrsten Sinema has defeated Republican Rep. Martha McSally in the battle for the open Senate seat in Arizona, giving Democrats their second Senate pickup of the cycle.

Sinema had 49.7 percent of the vote to McSally’s 48 percent when The Associated Press called the race Monday evening. Though McSally led narrowly on Election Night, Sinema took the lead in the race two days later and continued to pad her edge as the state counted outstanding votes through the weekend and Monday.

Sinema’s victory gives Democrats their second pickup of the election, and limits Republican gains in the chamber to just one seat so far, pending a recount in Florida and a runoff in Mississippi. Her victory guarantees Democrats will hold at least 47 Senate seats.

McSally, in a Twitter video Monday evening, said she called Sinema to concede the race and congratulated the Democrat for becoming Arizona’s first woman elected to the Senate after a “hard-fought battle.” She thanked her campaign staff and voters who supported her.

“We sure wish it came out with a different result, but I’m so thankful for you,” McSally said.

  1. This result is probably for the best.
    While in the House of Representatives, McSally voted against several proposals from President Trump
    while Sinema voted with President Trump.

  2. Sorry Martha lost…..all the way from Calif I stood with her….and will continue todo so whatever she pursues in life !!! From USN Veteran to AF Veteran…..keep on keepin’ on !!! mARY aNN hAMMER 11/12/18

  3. Please tell me how Both candidates can have over 1million votes but the population of district 2 is oly a little over 713,000 to 723,000?

  4. If there is a any serious talk of voter fraud, it should be investigated most thoroughly, as it is in Florida and Mississippi, as Sinema is much too anti-American to be allowed into Congress without the greatest post-election fight possible.

  5. Illegal Aliens , the Dead voting, made the difference. Don’t kid yourself when you see the results, wait till 2020 and see the results then compare the results to all the polls that the honest people have taken.. Here in Washington State with the CORRUPT PHONY mail in vote, we have not had a honest election for years, Even back when Bush Jr was in office Seattle just kept finding mail sacks with votes till the Democrats won. I used to be a Democrat. Today I consider Democrats to be enemies of the American People, totally. They are paid off totally in the Democrat party management, Not only in the Federal Government, but also in State Governments.

Better wake up and Demand JUSTICE.
