CD2 Update: McSally Leads Barber by 36 Votes

GOP challenger Martha McSally has once again taken the lead over Congressman Ron Barber—this time, by 36 votes. McSally has 125,223; Barber has 125,187. That's McSally with 49.92 percent of the vote and Barber with 49.90 percent.

A congressional election doesn't get much closer than this, folks. Every time Pima County runs through a batch of ballots, Barber takes the lead; every time Cochise County counts a batch of ballots, McSally takes the lead. It's kind of like watching a football game at this point. Or maybe a football game with a really long overtime.

At any rate, we think the race will come down to Pima County's provisional ballots—and those are a real mystery because so many people were mysteriously missing from the voter rolls that there's no good model to work from with the provisionals.

We don't have a firm number of how many ballots are left to count, but we'll continue to post updates as they become available.

(BTW, we're sorry we didn't post this last night, but we were at the Loft Film Festival for most of the night. Be sure to check out a film there today or tomorrow—the line-up is diverse and spectacular, and the new theater is fantatic!)
