"It won't be easy and it won't happen overnight, but we can work together to meet the challenges our country faces", Sinema told supporters on Monday night in Scottsdale, Ariz., after multiple media outlets called the election for her.
Ms. McSally, who had the lead at the end of Election Day on November 6, conceded on Monday, with almost all votes counted, as postal ballots were tallied. "I am so honored that Arizonans chose our vision". On Monday night, Sinema declared victory. The win brings the Senate totals in the next session of Congress to 53 Republicans and 47 Democrats, assuming Florida GOP Gov. Rick Scott wins the recount for his race against Democratic Sen.
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). She nearly never criticized President Donald Trump, reminded voters she had voted with Trump 60 percent of the time, and supported tougher penalties against employers who knowingly hire non-citizens. The National Republican Senatorial Committee, in an email to reporters, accused the Maricopa County recorder of trying to "cook the books" for Sinema. She becomes Arizona's first Democratic U.S. senator since 1994. That person would have to run in a special election in 2020 before running again for a full term in 2022. She did not attack President Donald Trump and treaded lightly on immigration. Apparently, the numbers were looking dismal enough that Congresswoman McSally made a decision to pull the plug last night and concede the election to her opponent. McSally argued that she would protect patients, despite her vote on the bill that would have removed many of those protections. She then became a Democrat and served several terms in the state Legislature.
McSally is the first female U.S. Air Force pilot to fly in combat. She also was the first woman to command a fighter squadron, again in A-10s.
Democrats' win in Arizona means that they were able to expand their reach into traditionally red territory - something they did in the House last week as they flipped control of the chamber, but have yet to do in the Senate.
