Democrat Kyrsten Sinema pulls ahead in razor-close Arizona Senate race

Democrat Kyrsten Sinema pulled ahead of Republican Martha McSally on Thursday in the Arizona Senate race by a margin of 2,000 votes. This marked the first time that Sinema has pulled ahead of McSally in the days since the election.

An additional 120,000 outstanding ballots were made available from Maricopa County Thursday. The county encompasses Phoenix and some of the state's liberal enclaves. There are an 345,000 ballots that needed to be counted per a knowledgeable source with the Arizona Secretary of State's office.

Republicans filed a lawsuit Wednesday night to challenge the way some Arizona counties count mail-in ballots, as election officials began to slowly tally more than 600,000 outstanding votes in the narrow U.S. Senate race. The task that could take days.

About 75 percent of Arizona voters cast ballots by mail, but those ballots have to go through a signature confirmation process, and only then can be opened and tabulated. If county recorders have issues verifying signatures they are allowed to ask voters to verify their identity.

4. I think she'll win

Most of the ballots left to be counted are in Maricopa County which favors Sinema.

I live in Maricopa County and I my new Democratic Congressman Greg Stanton is very Progressive and ran on holding Trump accountable. He won with an incredible 60% of the vote in my district. That's a very impressive win, especially when you consider that less than a decade ago Russell Pierce,(wingnut author of SB1070), was my Congressman for what seemed like forever and ever. IMO Arizona is on the verge of turning blue.

5. So happy! McSally lied like a rug about protecting the ACA.

And then when McSally got asked by reporters how that squares with her prior votes to repeal ACA, she refused to answer and demanded they ask her about "the caravan." She is such a piece of shit. So glad she is going down.

6. The GOP's strategy in this election is to file lawsuits when they are losing.
