Arizona's costly and contentious Senate race remained a nail-biter late Tuesday night as the contest between Republican Rep. Martha McSally and Democratic Rep. Kyrsten Sinema was too close to call.

McSally is clinging to a 49.3 percent lead.

McSally and Sinema were separated Wednesday by a small fraction of the tabulated votes, with hundreds of thousands of uncounted ballots still outstanding. If Sinema wins, it will reflect the first official proof of the blue shift within Arizona.

The sluggish count is a perennial issue for Arizona, but has rarely received such a high level of attention because the GOP-leaning state generally has had few nationally-watched nail-biting contests. She harped on Sinema, claiming she committed "treason" during her days as an anti-war activist in the early 2000s.

Watching the results roll in on two jumbo screens broadcasting CNN, 50-year-old Glass acknowledged that the race would be extremely close.

In her campaign, Sinema courted Republicans by positioning herself as a nonpartisan problem solver. Jeff Flake, a Republican who decided not to run for re-election because he realized his criticism of President Donald Trump made it impossible for him to survive politically.

A spokeswoman said they could not speculate on the outcome of the investigation and they were working with authorities. It was reported that the train was travelling at an average speed of more than 100 km/h on its solo journey.

She's one of the congressional Democrats most likely to vote to back Trump's agenda but has spent the race hammering McSally for casting a vote for the health bill backed by the president. "So we've just got to make sure that we stop Kyrsten Sinema from being our next senator".

Yet, Sinema's voting record is decidedly moderate. But she started the race on the defensive over her vote to repeal ObamaCare. Republicans have won every statewide race since 2006. RealClearPolitics' polling average shows McSally leading by just 1 point, but nearly every poll has had the two candidates within the margin of error.

Now, Sinema has come out in support of the president's decision, breaking away from many Democrats just prior to the polls closing.

But Jalokoi Solomon, the Arizona state director of progressive political action group NextGen America, said that young voters could turn future Arizona Senate races into toss-ups.

McSally cited Sinema's protesting of our troops, her helping illegal aliens cross the border, and her mocking Arizona as demonstrations that she is not the right candidate to represent Arizona voters.

She said the recorder will not update results Wednesday because of the lengthy signature-verification process.
