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.

‘Kiss Florida goodbye’: Voto Latino head warns Democrats of coming 2020 debacle

Published

Appearing on MSNBC's "AM Joy," Voto Latino CEO María Teresa Kumar said Democrats should not count on taking Florida's 29 electoral votes in the upcoming 2020 presidential election if Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is the at the top of the ticket.

During a fairly contentious panel discussion on the viability of Sanders as a candidate due to self-identifying as a democratic socialist, Kumar claimed that would not play well Florida's Latino community.

"All I can think about when David [Corn] was unpacking it for us, we can all agree is you can kiss Florida goodbye," she explained. "I say that, Floridians -- Latinos that have fled socialism, they have fled and they are in Florida and they have sensibilities that are different from the rest of the Latino community."

Following a discussion on Sen. Bernie Sanders' Nevada caucus win, Santorum tried to note the major differences between Trump and Sen. Bernie Sanders.

Responding to conservative commentator Linda Chavez who called both Sanders and Trump "two angry people," Santorum remarked, "I wanted to take issue with what Linda said: two angry folks representing the extremes, and I would agree with that, with Bernie Sanders, and he is representing, no question, the extreme of the Democratic Party and he says that he is a socialist and he is angry, I agree."
