That’s the only county still with outstanding precincts according to the AZ website linked above. Click on the ‘Counties Reporting’ link.
Must have been on tv because I didn’t hear anything on the radio until just recently.
thank you, I see Jesse won Cochise. I live in a slightly republican precinct in Pima.
I’m guessing this goes to Barber. Maybe in Nov. the sympathy will subside and the disgust with Obama will increase.
No way this district is “quite conservative.” It hasn't changed yet. The University of Arizona and moonbat Tucson is right in the middle of it. They are so stupid here they don't light the city streets because of an observatory. This district since 1982 has been represented by Jim McNulty, a moonbat Democrat, Jim Kolbe, a gay Rino, Giffords, and now this new idiot.
Pinal county had a 67% turnout? Santa Cruz over 50%?
Yes, it did look bad.
As usual it was presented out of context with no real indication of when he said it. Anyway, we in Oro Valley just got redistricted out of his district for the Nov. election. Probably making the district even more (D) biased.
looks like the margin for the dem was from pima county. the dems turned out their vote. big turnout (50%!) for a special. this definitely looks like urban lib vs rural conservative and urban won.
reminds me of ca. oh well. jesse would have been great. hope he hangs in there. on to the next race.
It didn’t help that McShitty told her supporters to vote for Barber because she’s running in the new CD 2
You have a great candidate in Jonathan Paton!
no, don’t think so. look at the results. pima county (urban) turnout huge (looks like more than 50%). special turnout should have been 20/25%. this district is basically blue and won on the ground game of the dems. jesse’s best chance was if the dems didn’t turn out their voters. the good thing is that the leftists spent bigtime to “hold” this district. our war is also one of attrition and i believe my money and time on this race for jesse was well spent.
That’s just it. Lefty Tucson is right in the middle of it, but not in it, yet can pour so much money into a campaign that they can dominate the local politics. The district itself is fairly conservative, but is hopelessly “out-monied” by Tucson.
The map of Tucson congressional districts themselves shows the gray area controlled by the ultra-leftist Rep. Grijalva, who is thought to be the most extreme leftist in the entire House, just adjacent to district 8.
