Arizona’s Senate race isn’t over. But Kyrsten Sinema should be feeling awfully good about her chances. Even some Republicans have begun to acknowledge the increasing likelihood of defeat.
“I think it’s over,” said Chuck Coughlin, a veteran Republican strategist in the state, crediting Democrats’ turnout operation, particularly among early voters. “It’s just not there. It’s not in the math.”
There are still nearly 220,000 votes left to be counted, and a new batch will be released Monday evening. Of the remaining uncounted votes, more than 90 percent are in counties where Sinema currently leads, and only about 16,000 are in counties where McSally is ahead.
How is Arizona even this close? The Dem couldn’t crap on the state enough in her public comments. Who the hell wants a Senator who can’t stand the state she represents?
