Three of Arizona’s congressional races were expected to be close— maybe even too close to call by the morning after Election Day. But in district one, incumbent Ann Kirkpatrick has already been declared the winner over challenger Andy Tobin. And in the Valley’s ninth district, Representative Kyrsten Sinema coasted to victory over Wendy Rogers.

But southern Arizona’s second district hasn’t been decided. Challenger Martha McSally has a tiny lead over incumbent Ron Barber with tens of thousands of votes left to be counted.
