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.

While it is obvious that the enemy, in this case, is a tiny, sticky, invisible microbe that stubbornly gloms onto surfaces or leaps through the air to weaponize subway cars or shared gym equipment or a touch to the face.

Some Trump supporters ‘delight’ in defying pandemic protocols to stick it to liberals: report

Published

A new report from The Atlantic's McKay Coppins reveals that some conservative Trump supporters are intentionally defying recommended social distancing protocols as a way to stick it to their political foes.

In his article, Coppins interviews Georgia resident Geoff Frost, who says that older conservatives who play at his local country club have made a habit of blowing off recommendations against shaking hands and sharing golf carts during the worst public health crisis the United States has faced in decades.

Pandemic modelers warn that Trump’s lies may increase the spread of COVID-19

Welcome to another edition of What Fresh Hell?, Raw Story’s roundup of news items that might have become controversies under another regime, but got buried – or were at least under-appreciated – due to the daily firehose of political pratfalls, unhinged tweet storms and other sundry embarrassments coming out of the current White House.

Epidemiologists model how an infectious disease outbreak may spread within and between communities. The computer models are based on research into past epidemics, the virulence of a pathogen,the  severity of the illness it causes and various other factors. But these scientists assume that leaders will offer a coherent response to the crisis, and that people will modify their behavior appropriately.
