Democrat Kyrsten Sinema now has a narrow lead over Republican Martha McSally in the Arizona Senate race.
The Arizona secretary of state posted the latest numbers on Thursday evening, and Sinema now has 932,870 votes statewide to McSally's 923,260 votes. The winner will take over the seat being vacated by Republican Sen. Jeff Flake, who decided not to run for re-election.
Officials say there are still 345,000 votes in Maricopa County that need to be counted, plus a smaller number in other counties, including about 195,000 early, provisional, and out-of-precinct ballots that were dropped off on Election Day, ABC 15 Arizona reports. Maricopa County Recorder Adrian Fontes said it will take several days to get all the ballots counted, and officials will provide updates daily at 5 p.m. Catherine Garcia
