Sinema's lead against McSally extends to more than 38,000 votes

YUMA, Ariz. - Democrat Kyrsten Sinema has increased her lead over her Republican opponent Martha McSally by more than 38,000 votes, according to The newest numbers released from the Arizona Secretary of States website.

The most recent statement from Kyrsten Sinema’s campaign Manager Andrew Piatt, released Sunday, shows growing confidence int he race. 

“With the latest ballot count, Kyrsten’s lead is insurmountable. McSally’s campaign said today’s results would be her ‘firewall’ but as we expected, no firewall emerged. McSally has lost every batch of votes from Maricopa County and today, Kyrsten won by 6.25 percent - nearly double her overall performance in the county to date. Kyrsten has now expanded her overall lead to 32,640 or 1.52 percent, meaning McSally would have to win the remainder of Maricopa County ballots by 22 percent to take the lead in this race. This is not plausible. Kyrsten will be declared the next U.S. Senator from Arizona.”

McSallyMartha’s Campaign CEO Jim  Bognet, released this statement on Sunday as well reassuring confidence in the Republican candidate. 

“Today our vote total grew at a greater rate than expected, and we expanded our vote margins in rural areas counting mail-in ballots dropped off on election day. The latest release provides compelling evidence that the remaining uncounted ballots are favorable to Martha. And we will continue our effort to make sure all lawful ballots are counted.

 All counties throughout Arizona have until Nov. 14 to process and register any early ballots that have yet to be counted.
