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.However, as Pima County is fairly blue, we stand a good chance:
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.
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?
