Results & Poll Closing Times (all times Eastern):
Tue Aug 26, 2014 at 9:05 PM PT: AZ-SoS: Here's a blast from the past. In 2012's Republican primary for Senate, businessman Wil Cardon hoped he could harness tea party support against then-Rep. Jeff Flake. It didn't work then, and Cardon's not having much electoral luck this year. In the GOP primary for secretary of state, Cardon is in a distant third place with 22 percent; The leader is out front with 44.
Tue Aug 26, 2014 at 9:06 PM PT: AZ-01: Yikes: Tobin leads Kiehne by eight votes in the Secretary of State's count. Kwasman looks like he's just too far behind to pull ahead.
Tue Aug 26, 2014 at 9:08 PM PT: AZ-01: Now the SoS has Tobin up a mighty 47 votes.
Tue Aug 26, 2014 at 9:19 PM PT: AZ-Gov: Along with Florida's David Rivera, we have another failed comeback from a former House member tonight. Former Rep. Frank Riggs is taking 5 percent right now for governor. Riggs used to represent a Northern California district in the 1990s, and left to try and run for U.S. Senate in 1998. His old wine country district has since turned safely blue.
Tue Aug 26, 2014 at 9:35 PM PT: AZ-01: About 44 percent of precincts are in (though it's hard to tell what proportion of the vote that is), and things remain tight, with Tobin sporting a 21 vote lead over Kiehne. Kwasman looks too far back to win this.
Tue Aug 26, 2014 at 9:42 PM PT: AZ-AG: Still no call yet, but with Brnovich leading Horne 54-46 with 51 percent in, it's probably only a matter of time. A lot of pro-Horne Pima is still out, but what's left of Maricopa should keep Horne out. Democrats would have loved for the scandal-tarred Horne to advance, but nominee Felecia Rotellini is capable of making this competitive against Brnovich.
Tue Aug 26, 2014 at 9:46 PM PT: AZ-AG: And sure enough, the AP calls this for Brnovich.
Tue Aug 26, 2014 at 10:05 PM PT: AZ-01: Via the SoS we have 60 percent in, and Tobin's lead is now 25 votes... wow.
Tue Aug 26, 2014 at 10:06 PM PT: AZ-01:
Tue Aug 26, 2014 at 10:19 PM PT: AZ-01: Here's where we're at right now. Via Ace of Spades HQ Decision Desk, which has the most up-to-date numbers anywhere, Tobin holds a 542 vote lead. As AOSHQ points out on Twitter, there are three counties with significant votes out. Apache and Pinal are good for Kiehne, while Navajo is pro-Tobin.
At this point it's anyone's guess how this goes down.
Tue Aug 26, 2014 at 10:42 PM PT: AZ-01: Via once again AOSHQ, Tobin's lead is once again 93 votes. The SoS is mostly caught up with them, but small Yavapai is not online yet.
At this point 19 precincts are left in pro-Kiehne Apache County, 22 precincts out of almost evenly divided Navajo, 15 precincts in Pima (where the two frontrunners are also deadlocked), and 36 precincts out of Pinal, another very tight county. At this point we have one pro-Kiehne county and three tight counties left. This is still very up in the air.
