  • Arizona Republican senatorial candidate Martha Mc Sally lost her lead in the race- and she's falling further and further behind by the day

Democrats on Monday won back a seat in the U.S. Senate as Republican Martha McSally conceded defeat in Arizona after Rep. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) saw her lead increase for a third straight day, while in Florida, aides to GOP Gov. Rick Scott said he would go to Capitol Hill for freshman orientation this week, even as his Senate race was still the subject of a recount in the Sunshine State.

Despite the Arizona result, Republicans will keep control of the 100-member Senate, winning at least 51 seats to the Democrats' 47.

The Associated Press called the race for Sinema late Monday.

An update to our earlier post thanks to a new batch of ballots from Pinal County: Democrat Kyrsten Sinema's lead over Republican Martha McSally now stands at 32,292 votes.

"That's the same approach I'll take to representing our great state in the Senate, where I'll be an independent voice for all Arizonans". "Senator McCain is irreplaceable, but his example will guide our next steps forward", Ms. Sinema said during her victory speech, adding: "He taught us to always assume the best in others, to seek compromise instead of sowing division".

AP Analysis: Democrats seek blueprint for bucking Trump in 2020
In the nine elections when the president's approval rating was below 50 percent, his party lost an average of 37 seats. In short, if the Republicans are defeated today, then, in time either Trump will change or America itself will change.

McSally's attacks on Sinema reached back more than 15 years, when Sinema was a Green Party spokeswoman and liberal activist.

Fifthly, exits polls in the race showed Sinema hung on to a high percentage of white voters (44 per cent) and won big with Hispanics (69 per cent), white college graduates (53 per cent), white college-educated women (55 per cent), voters 18 to 44 years old (59 per cent), and voters who ranked healthcare as the most important issue (77 per cent).

Sinema replaces retiring GOP Sen. Jeff Flake, a critic of the President's incendiary rhetoric.

"I spoke with a lifelong Republican and she told me that she simply was turned off by Trump", Lah reported. For Ms McSally to win, she has to reverse her fortunes in the Maricopa by winning by more than 20 per cent, instead of now losing by 6.25 per cent. McSally unsuccessfully tried to paint her as a liberal Democrat. That forced her to move to the right, especially on immigration. She also paid tribute to Senator John McCain, who died of cancer in August. She then became a Democrat and served several terms in the state Legislature.

Sinema ran as a nonpartisan centrist. But in the end Sinema, a three-term Congresswoman and former social worker, beat out McSally, the first female Air Force pilot to fly in combat. She also was the first woman to command a fighter squadron, again in A-10s.
