U.S. Representative Ron Barber, an Arizona Democrat and former aide to Gabrielle Giffords, has officially lost his re-election bid to the Republican challenger in November's congressional elections, a judge certified on Wednesday.
A superior court judge declared Martha McSally, a retired Air Force colonel and a pioneer of women's combat aviation in the 1990s, the winner after a state-mandated recount showed she won by 167 votes in the Nov. 4 election.
"There's no getting around that this was an incredibly close and hard-fought race. After what's been a long campaign season, it's time to come together and heal our community," McSally said in a statement.
Everyone should know about McCain by now. He was the canary who turned traitor.
I'm not a Vet, but I agree with you.
FRJM, thank you. Hell, that's all I can say ! THANK YOU !
To bad it was so close. Az in not a blue state. why so close? Could be to many dead people voting?
Then it's time to clean up the voter rolls and send any "hyphens" back to where ever they originated.
The last primary mcpain had was nasty. We tried like heck to vote him out of office. But the Tea Party was new here then. Since then we have gained more clout, became active in all our precincts, became committeemen to the point that we were able to censor mcpain. If he runs again he will get NO SUPPORT from AZ repubs., esp here in Maricopa Cty. So when the general came up we had to hold our nose to vote for him because the demoncrat was much. much worse if you can imagine that. This next time around 2016 will be the real test!
OH you mean the Illegal - aliens
This district is Tuscon...LOTS of illegals there that vote. I am surprised it was not closer.
Tucson is a very liberal city. In fact I think it is a sanctuary city. Suppose to be illegal in this state but you know how that goes.
Some group should look into it. If only someone would go to jail, if found wrong doing on anybodies part. Help save the Republic!!
Illegal aliens in Southern Arizona and Tucson is a Demokrat stronghold.
Yipeeeeeeeeeeee, A real fighter, coming to get Ya! Come with both guns drawn because their are enemies in our government that need to be removed!
