Of course, the more ballots that Arizona finds, the greater the win of the Democrat over McSally in their U.S. Senate election:
Rep. Kyrsten Sinema (D) extended her lead over Rep. Martha McSally (R) in the nail-biter race for a U.S. Senate seat in Arizona, after the state’s largest county released new vote tallies Saturday night.
Sinema expanded her lead over McSally to 28,688 votes out of more than 2.1 million cast, a margin of 1.35 percentage points.
Maricopa County, home of Phoenix, disclosed nearly 68,000 new votes on Saturday. Earlier Saturday, Pima, Mohave and Navajo counties all posted new vote tallies as they work through late absentee ballots and early voting.
Both Sinema’s campaign and McSally’s campaign have expressed confidence that the continuing counts will benefit their sides, but recent vote batches have tilted heavily toward the Democrat. McSally led initial counts after Election Day, but Sinema reclaimed the lead Thursday night as new votes were counted.
Saturday’s tranche of votes also skewed more heavily toward Sinema. Sinema won Maricopa County by three percentage points on Election Day, and she won the Saturday tally by about seven percentage points.
Isn’t it weird how they’re always finding new votes for Democrats, but it’s never in favor of Republicans? So odd…
