ARIZONA: Ron Barber Now Leads Martha McSally; Kyrsten Sinema Widens Gap Against Vernon Parker

Mon., Nov. 12 2012

Update: Democrat Kyrsten Sinema will be headed to Congress, according to the Associated Press.

As more votes from CD-9 are counted, Democrat Kyrsten Sinema's lead over Republican Vernon Parker continues to increase, as Sinema is now up by nearly 5,800 votes.

There's still a healthy amount of votes left to be counted, but down in CD-2 -- where there are far fewer votes left to be counted -- Democratic Congressman Ron Barber has taken back the lead from Republican challenger Martha McSally.

Down in Tucson, the Pima County Elections Department says it has about 30,000 votes left to count, as of yesterday. Most of CD-2 is in Pima County.

That doesn't make Barber's lead of just 330 votes safe by any means. McSally had a lead on Barber until this weekend, and was up by more than 1,200 votes on Wednesday.

Interestingly, if Barber and Sinema were to hold on to their leads, Arizona would be sending more Democrats than Republicans to the House of Representatives. If just one of them loses, then Republicans would have the advantage.

2. Pima is a Democratic stronghold, as I understand. Hopefully this is good news for Barber.

5. Slim and none

and Slim's hitching up the wagon.

Possible but he'd have to win a large percentage of the outstanding vote to take the lead. His best chance is to get close enough for the auto recount trigger.
