CD2 Update: McSally Now Leads Barber by 363 Votes

Posted By on Thu, Nov 6, 2014 at 6:05 PM

Pima County has counted another batch of about 16,000 votes today and Democratic Congressman Ron Barber has again closed some of the gap between him and Republican Martha McSally in the hotly contested Congressional District 2 race.

The latest count shows that McSally is now leading Barber by 363 votes. Yesterday, she lead by 1,293 votes.

County spokesman Mark B. Evans tells us about 14,000 votes remain to be counted, along with about 10,000 provisional ballots that may or may not be valid ballots. An unknown number are in CD2.

Cochise County, where McSally ran ahead of Barber, did not post new results today. There are an estimated 3,222 uncounted ballots in Cochise County.


In the other close race we're watching in Pima County, Democratic challenger Randy Friese has now taken a 233-vote lead over Republican state Rep. Ethan Orr in Legislative District 9. Yesterday, Orr led the race by 8 votes.
