AZ will likely decide if it is 3 or 2 but the Republican is ahead

They need to be certified and then counted. It will take days


A lot of Dems walked in their ballot out of an abundance of caution as anything post marked after the 31st is not allowed.

We think we are going to win and there is no need for a recount

the state Senate was tied 18-18 and it's currently 21-12 Democrats with 3 seats outstanding.

state House was 80-71 Democrat and I think Dems picked up 8 or 9 seats at least.

About nine races where Dems have solid leads, just not called yet.
