The Arizona CD02 election has been too close to call, but at least one paper is saying that the winner is Ron Barber - Gabby Giffords' campaign manager, also wounded in that shooting.
The race for the 2nd Congressional District had been too close to call for 10 days, but on Friday an Arizona Republic analysis determined that McSally would not be able to muster enough votes from the remaining uncounted ballots to surpass the thin lead Barber had held in recent days.and
McSally could not be reached for comment late Friday, but her campaign scheduled a news conference for 2 p.m. Saturday.This would make Arizona's Congressional representation more Democratic than Republican.
Barber also could not be reached, but on Friday night a campaign adviser, Rodd McLeod, told The Republic that he planned to make a statement Saturday.
I (or others) will post updates as they come in.
Tired of politics? Need to escape? Try my Greek mythology based novels, either the story of Oedipus from the point of view of Jocasta, or a trilogy about Niobe, whose children were murdered by the gods - or were they?
