Ron Barber (D) has pulled ahead again in the race for Gabby Giffords's old seat against challenger Martha McSally (R). In this Phoenix News piece the relevant paragraphs are:

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.

However, as Pima County is fairly blue, we stand a good chance:
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.
Interesting, isn't it?  Even deep red AZ may be purple!

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?

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
