  1. Woke up at 5 a.m. due to the full moon. Updated my General Election results post for Southern AZ — challenger Martha McSally now in the lead (only 36 vote difference, but only 145 of 194 precincts have reported); LD 2 House Rep. Demion Clinco appears to have lost; LD 9 House race too close to call for all 3 candidates – Steele, Orr & Friese; TUSD Board incumbents AdelitaGrijalva and Michael Hicks appear to have won re-election. Stay tuned for updates due to counting of provisional ballots.

  2. Sorry guys, I just got back from Dem HQ in downtown Phx and had no internet on my tablet while I was there. I’m bummed about the night in general but happy for the bright spots, such as keeping Dr. Eric Meyer in LD28 and our Dems in Congress.
