So now he’ll do what all Libs do once they get a lead (even though all ballots aren’t counted yet), he’ll call himself “The Winner” and then the AZREDSTAR will claim no need to count the rest, Barber won.

Does anyone know how many ballots remain to be counted?

No I don’t know. Is your neighborhood in the district?

This is nothing less than Chicago style theft. Daley did it for Kennedy and the Dems have developed it into a bloody science now.

Yes, I’m in the district. I actually have long disliked Martha McSally from when she was getting special treatment in Saudi & running around as “America’s First Female Fighter Pilot” after logging less than 100 hours of combat time when no one was shooting at us. But I voted for her because another rat in Congress does no one any good.

A few days ago, I was hearing that 50K ballots needed counting, but that wasn’t official. Not hearing anything now.

Between Paton, Parker, and McSally, it’s far too close to be random chance. Chicago style thuggery has come to Arizona. Maybe it’s time for some smash-mouth thuggery of our own.

And boy, did we ever get screwed by the Independent Redistricting Commission and its raft of crypto-socialist “independents.”

They find some lost votes in a car trunk?

By most definitions, special treatment in a muslim country means being treated as a human being. What’s wrong with that?

The procedures set in place were for force protection. She had a right to object. But if I was the one objecting, as a male, I could object to my boss, and then to HIS boss. After that, I was expected to accept their judgment unless it involved something illegal or dangerous.

But being “The First Female Fighter Pilot”, she got to object all the way to the SecDef. Do you think I could have done that? Not hardly! But she also had congressional protectors watching over her, so she was “special”. And according to the A-10 guys I knew, that was how she approached everything. It was about her.

Didn’t know her personally, but I was in Saudi at the same time. In fact, I made a LOT of trips there, while she did not. I flew as many ‘combat hours’ in a 17 day period as she had for most of her career. In a fighter squadron, it is FLYING that counts for your reputation - not working for Congress, or how many supporters you have in Congress, or your being “special” because of your sex.

Well, at least it wasn’t just barley, or we’d be hard-pressed to win the recount. : )

I appreciate the explanation. Yes, at some point, the chain of command stops at the officers for 99.9 percent of everything. Well, she won that fight and I admire that she has the courage to run for office. If she wins, I expect she will set herself apart from the milquetoast RINOs in our party.

We’ll have 3 stolen seats in AZ to win in 2014. Disgusting.
