Down to the wire

A request by GOP candidate Martha McSally for a restraining order to halt the count of provisional ballots in Pima County was denied Monday by Pima County Superior Court Judge James Marner.

McSally, who asked the judge to declare the ballots void, and bar officials from counting them, has had her lead slowly eroded as additional ballots have been tallied in her challenge to U.S. Rep. Ron Barber. But in the latest results, released Tuesday afternoon, she leads with a 133-vote spread — and just a handful of ballots that could possibly be added to the tally.

“We’ve seen [McSally’s] tricks before, when she tried to throw out votes in Cochise County.”
