Preliminary Results Arizona Federal Candidates 2018


The U.S. Senate race is too close to call, but Rep. Martha McSally currently holds more than a 14,000 vote lead over Rep. Kyrsten Sinema. Green Party candidate Angela Green, who withdrew days before the election, received more votes than the margin between McSally and Sinema (who was a Green before she was a Democrat). Sort of ironic.

There are reportedly over 500,000 ballots yet to be be verified and counted. It’s going to be awhile (and it could be close enough for a recount).

The House races have all been called. Democrats picked up the open CD 2 seat with Ann Kirkpatrick’s win in Southern Arizona, and Greg Stanton held the open seat in CD 9 for Democrats in Maricopa County. All the incumbents were reelected along party lines.

Current estimated voter turnout is 46.67%. When more than half of registered voters cannot take the time to fill out a ballot — not including the large number of eligible voting age persons not registered to vote — the health of our democracy is in serious jeopardy. You have to do better Arizona!

(These are the overnight numbers.)

Martha McSally (R)        847,021
