    Now Hobbs ahead by 13,171 so the lead is widening. And Kennedy’s lead is 16, 642 and I heard she has declared victory for this Corp. Commission race.

  3. Will Pima County Elections finish today? Still waiting for only close race left for PCC Governing Bd. District 5:

    Luis Gonzales 22,138

    Stay tuned. This is an open seat as the incumbent Luis Gonzales (with same name) is not running for re-election.
