Congressman Ron Barber has closed some of the gap with GOP challenger Martha McSally after Pima County election officials ran a batch of early ballots through the machine. Barber trailed by 1,312 votes this morning; he now trails by 426, according to the Secretary of State's website.

Here's a breakdown of the early ballots left to count. If we had to guess, we'd say that the ballots counted this afternoon were the batch of 13,500 that were ready to go.

That would leave about 40,900 early ballots left to count, along with the 26,000 provisional ballots.

UPDATED: Pima County Elections Director Brad Nelson tells us the batch of ballots run this afternoon was indeed the roughly 13,500 that he told us about earlier in the day. Coming up Thursday afternoon at 1 p.m.: A new batch of 8,000 early votes.
