Sinema defeats McSally in U.S. Senate race

Kyrsten Sinema

After a delay in ballot counting following last week's midterm election, Democrat Kyrsten Sinema was officially announced as the victor of Arizona's Senate race on Monday.

Sinema and McSally are battling for Jeff Flake's Senate seat.

Also finally winning Monday is Democrat Kathy Hoffman in her race for superintendent of public instruction.

Secondly, while the National Republican Senatorial Committee's conduct in casting doubt on the vote-counting process was reprehensible, Ducey, Cindy McCain and Republican candidate Martha McSally behaved appropriately, refusing to join in the anti-democratic process of delegitimising elections that don't go their way. "It's unsafe and it lessens who we are as a country, but Arizona proved there is a better way forward.' She also paid tribute to 'irreplaceable" senator John McCain, saying 'his example shines a light on our way forward'.

"Arizona rejected what has been far too common in our country - name calling, petty, personal attacks and doing and saying what it takes to get elected", Sinema said as scores of backers waved her purple-and-yellow campaign sign.

Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Kyrsten Sinema participates in the pregame coin toss before the game between the Utah Utes and the Arizona State Sun Devils at Sun Devil Stadium on November 3 in Tempe, Arizona.

But the real star of her concession video is McSally's dog Boomer, a delightfully unbothered golden retriever who upstages McSally with his blissful, tongue-lolling presence, sitting upright next to her on the couch and making a play for a handshake. McSally had 1,059,124 votes, giving her 47.96 percent of the vote total. Republican Sen. Jon Kyl, who was appointed after McCain's death, has pledged not to run.

By Election Day, it was certain that Arizona was going to have its first female U.S. Senator, as all three candidates in the race - Sinema, McSally, and Green Party candidate Angela Green, who withdrew before Election Day - are female.

Read the full report at Fox News. McSally also campaigned on her military record and support for the Armed Forces. McSally argued that she would protect patients, despite her vote on the bill that would have removed many of those protections.

During the Senate campaign, Sinema stuck to her centrist message, nearly robotically at times. She also was the first woman to command a fighter squadron, again in A-10s.

Sinema's victory showed that Democrats are continuing to gain momentum in the rapidly diversifying Sun Belt and firmly places Arizona among the most important presidential and Senate battlegrounds. Gabby Giffords after she was wounded in a 2011 assassination attempt. It wasn't just the way the president deals with immigrants, she said after shaking Sinema's hand at a Phoenix taco shop. His support of the president's initiatives, however, was mixed.
