Recount pending: McSally clings to 133-vote lead over Barber

Race too close to call; recount will be triggered with margin of 200 or less

Too close to call: Martha McSally held a dwindling lead over U.S. Rep. Ron Barber, up just 133 votes Tuesday as Pima County reported that "nearly all" ballots had been tallied. While McSally is the apparent winner of the election, an automatic recount is almost inevitable. There are about 200 conditional ballots that might yet be added to the count.

McSally will do squat for the 99 percent, or the 75 percent, or the 50 percent. Time to start planning for 2016.

@EllieMae

As opposed to the other guy, who got elected for the sole reason that Queen Gabby told people to vote for him?

I’ll never understand how people get hooked on to one party and then think that their party is great and the other one is so bad…when in reality they’re both exactly the same thing. They exist solely to fight each other, create gridlock, and keep the two-party system hopelessly in place so the cycle can repeat.

The only hope we have of ever getting a politician that will “do squat” for us is to finally start electing candidates outside the two rival gangs in government. But, that will never happen because most of us drink the kool-aid of one of the two parties. Very, very sad.

@Bret Linden well Bret, Gabby was and still is a great leader. Many Tucsonans respect her life and opinion.

I’d be more upset about all this “dark money” , where our votes are basically purchased by corporate propaganda machines from God knows where who get us nice and brainwashed for further exploitation.
