Democrat Kyrsten Sinema beats GOPís Vernon Parker in Arizonaís 9th Congressional District

Source: Washington Post

PHOENIX ó Former Democratic state Sen. Kyrsten Sinema has been elected to represent a new Phoenix-area congressional district, emerging victorious after a bitterly fought race that featured millions of dollars in attack ads.

/snip ...

Sinema had a narrow lead on election night that made the race too close to call. But she slowly improved that advantage as more ballots were tallied in recent days, and now has a nearly 6,000-vote edge that is too much for Republican Vernon Parker to overcome.

12. There's that word...


"openly"

Not knocking you, LiberalBoy. It's just that sexuality is such a non-issue. It bugs me that for some reason, in the still-stunted universe of DC, that word/phrasing is still somehow necessary. Hell, I still say it myself. Somebody break me of my bad habits!

11. Woohoo - that's my district

I didn't think she could do it! I thought she was too left (I didn't vote for her in the primary for that reason). I am PSYCHED!!!!

And, although he won a different district in AZ, f**k you David Schweikert, you misogynistic tea-bagger douchebag - at least you aren't my rep any more!
