Gabbie Giffords AZ Seat:red on election night but the count is turning blue, blue, blue! (updated #s

Last edited Wed Nov 14, 2012, 03:13 PM - Edit history (2)

Barber is now 829 votes ahead!! Man-oh-man does that make me happy. For the Dem's to lose a seat after an assassination attempts just sets a very bad precedence. I wish it was Gabbie but I'm mighty glad it will be Ron

It looks like Ann Kirkpatrick will pick up that toss up seat for the Dems as well! (She's 7500 ahead at this point!)

(still 80,000 separating Flake and Carmona....keep counting Arizona, KEEP COUNTING!)

Here: http://elections.huffingtonpost.com/2012/results/house

Roll your cursor over the four light blue squares on the link above.


p.s The Ann Kirkpatrick race has already been called for her.

Edited to add...
I've been refreshing that page for several days and Barber has had the lead for many days now.

i think that it will really depend on how the democrats stand up to the republicons, if they sell out on SS, medicare and medicaid than the dems will sink their hopes in 2014 just like 2010 for not having any spine.

27. "Arizona Republicans Sue To Block Ballots In Latino Precinct"

"One of the few unresolved congressional races in the nation could come down to whether voters in a heavily Latino precinct in Arizona get their ballots counted this week.

Backed by two high-powered lawyers, a supporter of Republican congressional candidate Martha McSally filed a lawsuit on Tuesday to get election authorities to halt counting of provisional ballots from a heavily Latino area of the state’s Cochise County.

The suit could be pivotal as McSally is trying to unseat Rep. Ron Barber (D) in southern Arizona’s 2nd Congressional District. At last count, McSally was trailing Barber by just 512 votes, but the lead had changed hands multiple times since election night....."

28. THIS is why they need to keep counting

and this is why the Feds need to refuse to seat any Reps or Senators from AZ until all the ballots have been counted.

While that Brewer idiot thinks anybody she illegally purged from the rolls should stay that way, it's not how things work in this country.

I hope AZ catches a clue and throws her bunch out in 2014.

33. I believe Kirkpatrick has already been called...

I'm pretty positiveBarber will end up winning - this happens every election here - Barber was close over the summer, Gabbie always had close races, but the provisionals and earlies always seem to break Dem.

I don't think Carmona will pull it out - he's still mathematically got a chance, but the remaining ballots have to break 2 or 3 to 1 for him to win. I've got a friend running for state rep in Maricopa who is anxiously watching the results to see if she will get back into the legislature as well.


Crossing my fingers though.
