GOP loses Arizona seat as McSally concedes. So what now?

Arizona Republican senatorial candidate Martha Mc Sally lost her lead in the race- and she's falling further and further behind by the day

"I have never been into politics until this year", said Oralia Ochoa, 26, a first-time voter who cast her ballot for Ms. Sinema and other Democrats.

After a delay in ballot counting following last week's midterm election, Democrat Kyrsten Sinema was officially announced as the victor of Arizona's Senate race on Monday. Of the remaining uncounted votes, more than 90 percent are in counties where Sinema now leads, and only about 16,000 are in counties where McSally is ahead. "This is not plausible".

"This week, Senator-elect Scott will fly to Washington to participate in new-member orientation, including the photo and voting in leadership elections", Scott's campaign told reporters.

Republicans expanded their 51-49 Senate majority by two seats on election night, strengthening their ability to confirm pro-life judges as their loss of the House of Representatives all-but eliminates any prospect of pro-life federal legislation over the next two years. The Senate race in Florida remains undecided and the Mississippi Senate race is going to a runoff later this month. She nearly never criticized President Donald Trump, reminded voters she had voted with Trump 60 percent of the time, and supported tougher penalties against employers who knowingly hire non-citizens.

However, Sinema's victory is still huge: For one thing, she managed to flip her historically red Arizona Senate seat over to the blue side.

Sinema, meanwhile, criticized McSally's vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act and kept her distance from national Democrats. The former Air Force combat pilot adopted an aggressive tone, accusing Sinema of supporting treason over her 2003 remark that it was "fine" if a radio host who was asking her a question joined the Taliban.

Fifthly, exits polls in the race showed Sinema hung on to a high percentage of white voters (44 per cent) and won big with Hispanics (69 per cent), white college graduates (53 per cent), white college-educated women (55 per cent), voters 18 to 44 years old (59 per cent), and voters who ranked healthcare as the most important issue (77 per cent). Republican Sen. Jon Kyl, who was appointed after McCain's death, has pledged not to run. "And I also want to say thank you to everybody who supported me in this campaign, my staff and volunteers and everybody who voted for me". She did not attack President Donald Trump and treaded lightly on immigration. "As I traveled around this state I was so inspired by the many people that I met and I am convinced that Arizona is the best state in the country and our best days are still yet to come and I'm going to continue to pray for our success", McSally concluded. Democrat Jennifer Pawlik, seeking one of two state House seats in LD 17 in Chandler now is outpolling incumbent Republican Jeff Weninger, though just barely. Mr Rohrabacher was one of most vocal supporters of Russian Federation and its President Vladimir Putin in Congress.
