Voters in Arizona were set to select a replacement for former congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords (D) in a competitive special election on Tuesday, but late poll closings left the winner undetermined late Tuesday night.

It's only 7pm in AZ.
That district is loaded with freeloaders and Barber is the Freeloader King. This one is going to be tough.
CNN today spent a lot of time today showing its support for the ‘Rat candidate.
Exactly. If the Washington Post knows what’s going to happen later tonight, the fix is already in.
NPR likewise. Just blatant boosterism of the leftwing extremist, and heaps of scorn for the war veteran running for the seat. No pretense at objectivity.
6:19 PM. No Daylight Savings Time in AZ.
Late poll closings = ballots imported from Mexico haven’t been tabulated yet.
That and a lot of the voters in that district don’t get out of bed until around supper time.
Ya almost got me. ;-)
Truthfully, I don’t think there will be much if any hanky-panky.
Giffords old district was quite conservative, and she was able to win the election there by getting a lot of outside money from Tucson liberals who were just outside the district. In fact, she was shot while campaigning for money outside her district.
However, this worked because nobody was giving much money to the Republican candidates there. This time is different.
To start with, the district has been changed to incorporate even more conservatives. The out of state money going to both sides is much greater than it was before.
Very little of the Republican money is going directly to the Republican candidate. Instead it is working to get him elected at a different level, where truthfully it is probably more effective.
It will be interesting to see what happens, but the end result will be moot all too soon.
Looks like the Dem will take this in a walk based upon other reports. Hope not.
I would be Shocked
Last week NJ-10 had a primary. Fortunately the late-far-left-wing extremist’s son won’t take office until General Election in Nov. No Special elections in NJ.
oh no. not again, with the slow polls. nothing on the sec state’s site yet.
Polls still open.
good. i hope they close on time. for a special, there should be a very low turnout.
Thanks for posting the results thread.
If Debbie Downer’s former BFF Gabby would have gone down in flames this November, thanks to her ObamaCare vote and 1070 opposition....and then she was shot. Now she is St. Gabby, and the little Pelosite douchebag Ron Barber will likely win - despite his blaming Karl Rove and Palin for the shooting. And in November, a much more Democrat district will make it easy for him.
