Freedom candidate Martha McSally still leads in the ongoing vote counting for Arizona’s second congressional district, but her lead is shrinking by the day.
The conservative now leads incumbent Ron Barber, representing the party that wants to CONTROL as much of our lives as possible, by just 179 votes. That represents a net loss of 162 votes for McSally in today’s counting.
And this is pretty much the scenario of the 2012 election between the same two candidates, when McSally led the leftist Barber on election night and then he edged ahead and emerged victorious in the days following the end of the voting season.
This district has not been in conservative hands in a long, long time — decades in fact.
Earlier today, McSally’s campaign asked a court to stop the counting of provisional ballots that were not correctly filed These are provisional ballots submitted with a missing election official signature. A judge denied the request, even though the McSally campaign said Pima County election officials are not properly following state law. Who would imagine that? Wow, shocking! Democrats almost always seem to prevail in these post-election circuses.
