Kyrsten Sinema Called Winner in CD-9, Defeating Vernon Parker

Kyrsten Sinema
Democrat Kyrsten Sinema will be headed to Congress, according to the Associated Press.

The vote count is the same as when we checked with the Maricopa County Recorder's office earlier this morning -- Sinema's up nearly 5,800 votes -- but that appears to be a solid-enough lead.

Sinema's lead over Parker grew by about 2,000 votes over the weekend, and there are thousands of ballots remaining to be counted.

There were 140,000 early ballots and 122,000 provisional ballots still waiting to be processed and tabulated as of yesterday, and according to our assumptions, about 47,500 of those remaining votes might be from CD-9 voters.

If that's the case, then Parker would need to score about 53 percent of the remaining votes, while Sinema lands 41, and third-party candidates pick up the scraps for Parker to have a shot. That's not a very likely scenario.

If the call for Sinema remains true, then it would come down to the race between Democratic Congressman Ron Barber and Republican challenger Martha McSally in Tucson's CD-2 to see if Arizona sends more Republicans or Democrats to Washington as Representatives.

I want to get excited about this outcome but the best I can come up with is, "Meh".

 

Not much of a choice in this race, which seems to have been more of a crawl.

You know you've got a weak candidate when he loses to a fucking communist.  And in this case, it's not even hyperbole.

Now if we could just get the Feds to investigate the Arizona Republicans "Dirty Deeds: Sending out wrong voting dates to Hispanic Voters in Spanish, Minority Voters getting Mass Provisional Ballots which were not counted when awarding Offices.  (A half Million non-counted votes for Sheriff.)

 

Business as uual for Dirty Arizona Politics.

If you are not black and you did not vote for Sinema then you are racist. Sinema is a very bad choice for Arizona.

 @JoeArpaioFan Just more proof of what a little punk bitch you are Jaffy. You include the names of women and children because you're too timid, in a girly way, to deal face to face with a man.

 @goblackdontcomeback That's what I'm trying to say. Why would the Liberals and other Obama supporters say that we are racist when they did not vote for Vernon Parker. Surely they must be a racist too.

 @JoeArpaioFan  @goblackdontcomeback   Ha!  I see what you're trying to do there!  You ain't gonna fool me (or anyone else with an iota of sense).  No, no one's going to fall for the old "he's black therefore all blacks and all liberals MUST vote for him" routine.  Paradise Valley is filthy rich.  They LOVE Republicans.  They just didn't think much of this one, and they liked Sinema well enough to elect her.

 @JoeArpaioFan  @goblackdontcomeback Liberals & other Obama supporters voted for Sinema because we do not agree with the Republican/Tea Party platform. We do not vote based on race, sex, gender, etc. We vote on the ISSUES, something you two don't seem to comprehend.
