The AZ Senate Race Just Took A Crappy Turn

Hannah Bleau

We’re still waiting on the election results from Arizona’s Senate race, and it just got REAL depressing REAL fast. Democrat Kyrsten Sinema, who sucks for reasons listed here, here, here, here, here and here, now leads Republican Martha McSally by just over 2,000 votes.

The results were updated after 5 p.m. Thursday, the first time since election night that the tallies had been substantially updated.

Sinema was leading. She had 916,380 votes, representing 48.9 percent of the total reported votes while McSally had 914,369 votes, or 48.8 percent. Green Party candidate Angela Green had earned 43,056.

At mid-day Thursday, McSally stood at 856,848 votes, or 49.37 percent, while Sinema had 839,775 or 48.39 percent. Green Party candidate Angela Green earned 38,978 votes, representing 2.25 percent of the votes posted so far.

It’s too soon to know who will ultimately prevail.

Things could change very quickly, but still. I don’t even know why this is competitive. It shouldn’t be.
