Arizona Senate race no longer ‘too close to call’ as Democrat Kyrsten Sinema expands lead to more than 30,000 votes

Published

Kyrsten Sinema just gained another chunk of votes as the ballot counting continues in Arizona.

While Republicans have attempted to try and stop votes from being counted in close elections, most states and counties have continued to ensure every ballot is counted as it was cast. As a result, Sinema is now over 30,000 votes ahead of Martha McSally, AZFamily.com reported.

“Election Officials estimate about 195,000 of these are early ballots, provisional and out-of-precinct ballots that voters cast or dropped off on Election Day,” according to a news release from the Maricopa County Recorder’s Office. “Additionally, about 3,000 early ballots that the Elections Department received before Nov. 6 must be tabulated.”

Arizona continues to count the ballots and more than 260,000 remain as of Saturday, AZCentral reported. McSally would have to win at least 150,000 of the 260,000 votes left to reclaim the lead and of those 260,000 votes left, at least 125,000 are from Maricopa County, where Phoenix is. That’s 57.7 percent of the ballots left that McSally would have to win.

In response, the crowd began to shout "Send her back!"

Trump allowed the crowd to continue the chant for a full 12 seconds before continuing his speech.

The next day, amidst criticism that he was riling up his fans to dangerous levels, Trump claimed that he had indeed shut down the chant, in direct contradiction to the video. New York Times journalist Peter Baker reported Trump's claim on Twitter.

White House aides fear Trump believes House vote against impeachment means it’s never going to happen: report

Published

A proposal to start impeachment hearings that failed in the House on Wednesday led Donald Trump to optimistically proclaim that his presidency is safe at his North Carolina rally last night. But his proclamation has some White House officials worried the president really believes he is out of the woods.

According to a report at Politico, close aides to the president worry that his comment that "we have all this [impeachment] behind us," may be based on an unfounded notion by Trump about how Congress works.

Speaking at his campaign rally in Greenville, N.C., Trump boasted to the crowd, "I just heard that the United States House of Representatives has overwhelmingly voted to kill the most ridiculous project I’ve ever been involved in: the resolution -- how stupid is that -- on impeachment. I want to thank those Democrats because many of them voted for us, the vote was a totally lopsided 332-95-1.”
