After a very close election that turned on late-counted and provisional ballots, Kyrsten Sinema has now defeated Vernon Parker to win Arizona's new District 9 seat in the House. Parker has strong tea party ties. Parker is/was one of the GOP's AA rising stars and gave the GOP radio address back in September.

The remaining AZ seat with Ron Barber (who took Giffords place) and McSally is still too close to call. Barber leads by a few hundred votes but there are a lot of outstanding votes to be tallied yet. If Barber prevails, AZ's delegation will be 5:4 Democrat.

I didn't know they released the results. Sinema and Parker ran nasty campaigns. I'm glad this one has been put to bed. I would have preferred Parker, but I wish Sinema the best and hope she does well for my district.

I'm VERY surprised that the Barber/McSally race is this close. I would have figured that Barber would be a shoe in because southern AZ just comes across as much more liberal than the Valley. Especially because Barber is so closely aligned with Gabby.
