Democrats Kyrsten Sinema, Ann Kirkpatrick claim congressional seats [View all]
Two of Arizona’s three undecided congressional races were resolved Monday as Democrats Kyrsten Sinema and Ann Kirkpatrick claimed victory in District 9 and District 1, respectively.
Sinema, a former state lawmaker, will represent the Valley in a new district that Arizona gained this year to reflect population gains. Kirkpatrick will head back to Washington to represent the sprawling northeast Arizona district she represented from 2008 to 2010.
Both will be in Washington this week for freshman orientation.
Meanwhile, the race in Tucson-based Congressional District 2 between Rep. Ron Barber, a Democrat, and Republican Martha McSally remains too close to call. On Monday afternoon, Barber was ahead by about 700 votes. The lead has seesawed back and forth between the two since Election Day.
