It was JUST a sympathy vote.
"Now that Barber comes out on top, the GOP will not be able to use Tucson as an example for voters wanting a change from the status quo.
It was JUST a SYMPATHY VOTE!
You have to love the way they tell you that it was NOT but yet it IS!
My take, too. Let's hope Martha McSally, a retired USAF colonel with combat experience announces shortly for the fall election. She finished second to Jesse Kelly in the primary this spring, and was closing fast at the end. She'll give Barber a tough run in the fall, and could well reclaim the seat for the GOP.
