Declared winner of the Arizona senate seat— democrat, Kyrsten Sinema—after ballot counting kept her ahead by a consistent margin, beat republican opponent, Martha McSally.

An article from ABC news reviewed the background of both candidates and their respective campaigns.

Sinema campaigned as a centrist democrat who is wanting to work with republicans to pass legislation.

The Latino vote was seen as crucial to Sinema’s race as drives to register more Latinos to vote likely paid off and where, “Latinos in Arizona have expressed displeasure with the president.”

 

McSally campaigned on supporting President Trumps tax cuts, his Affordable Care Act repeal and border security. McSally, a former Air Force pilot, was also linked to her service and for support for the Armed Forces.

McSally congratulated Sinema publicly on tweeter via video.

“I wish her success. I’m grateful to all those who supported me in this his journey. I’m inspired by Arizonans’ spirit and our state’s best days are ahead of us.” McSally tweeted.

“Ms. Sinema’s victory guarantees the democrats at least 47 senate seats.”  

Republicans control 51 with two still undecided: Florida where there is a recount and Mississippi, where there is a run-off, according to the New York Times.

Sinema pledged “to continue working in government to find common ground.”

As of right now Democrats lead the House of Representatives and hold six seats in the state’s Congressional Delegation against the Republicans who have five seats.

The Democrats have not had a majority in the delegation since the 1960s.
