Early polls show Martha McSally trailing Democrat Ron Barber.

However, people at tonight’s republican election party aren’t worried what so ever quite yet.
“That’s expected,” said Lorri Oien. “We know (McSally) is going to win Cochise County.”

Oien’s younger daughter is Elizabeth Oien and was named outstanding teenage republican of the nation. Elizabeth Oien graduated from Sabino High School and currently attends Pima Community College. She has also interned under McSally since August.

“[The campaign] is fast passed,” Elizabeth Oien said. “Every time you go into the office you do something new. So it’s really exciting. Hopefully it will pay off.”

Elizabeth Oien’s older sister Amanda Oien also helped out with the campaign by making phone calls and managing McSally’s social media account. Both the girls are concerned about getting a job once they graduat and are worried about the job market in Tucson’s future.

“I’d love to stay here,” Amanda Oien said. “It’s my home but if we don’t put the right people in charge who can do better job with the economy and making everything business friendly I don’t know what will happen.”
Moving to a different city is something that might happen to Oien’s.

“We have already had discussions about the possibility of moving because there are limited jobs here,” Elizabeth Oien said. “Being born here, though, you want to better the community you are already in.”
