Arizona GOP sues to limit mail-in ballots in McSally-Sinema race

Trump's trade policies have scrambled partisan lines for congressional candidates ahead of the midterm vote with some Republicans opposing his policies and some Democrats supporting

Reported vote counts show that Democratic Senate candidates this year thus far have won roughly 44 million votes, whereas Republican Senate candidates have earned 33 million, per The Washington Post. The office then starts processing the "late early ballots", which include those dropped off at polling places on Election Day.

Democrats hope Sinema can reverse a decade-long losing streak in all Arizona statewide races.

Sinema and McSally are battling to fill the seat being left open by outgoing Republican Sen.

The race is a contest to replace outgoing Republican Senator Jeff Flake, a Trump critic who is despised by most people in his own party and made a decision to retire instead of running for re-election.

"McSally, the Republican Party nominee, leads her Democratic challenger, Sinema, 49 percent to 48 percent in the latest poll to come out on Arizona's Senate election". She has tried to rally Republican voters by emphasizing her military background as the first US female combat pilot while touting her support for the president's tax cut and other parts of his agenda.

McSally and Sinema scheduled no public appearances for Wednesday.




In response, McSally criticized Sinema over her shifting views, contending she was still a closet liberal who disrespected the military. As of Wednesday morning, Republicans have secured 16 and Democrats 13. She remained optimistic about a Sinema victory.

McSally has painted Sinema as a radical leftist based on her activism in Green Party circles during the early 2000s, deploying old clips and images to tarnish Sinema, such as a photo of Sinema wearing a pink tutu at an anti-war protest.

During her 2016 campaign to be re-elected to her Tucson area swing district House seat, McSally criticized Trump for attacking the parents of an Army captain killed in Iraq and for a videotape in which the future president bragged about sexually assaulting women.

Both Sinema (88 percent) and McSally supporters (88 percent) have a high degree of vote certainty, and equal numbers of Democrats (50 percent) and Republicans (50 percent) are extremely interested in the election.

People gather for the Arizona Democrats Election Night party at the Renaissance Hotel Downtown in Phoenix, Nov. 7, 2018. The result of that election will determine whether the makeup of the Arizona Senate mirrors previous years.
