The Republican Senate gains from Tuesday night’s election are suddenly in question with two races now in critical recounts and appearing to track Left. With the fight for Arizona’s U.S. Senate seat up for grabs, the ongoing count has led to progressive Democrat candidate Kyrsten Sinema taking a 9,600 vote lead over declared Republican winner U.S. Air Force veteran Martha McSally. Meanwhile, in Florida, Republican Senate candidate Rick Scott is crying foul over “rampant fraud” as election officials in two super blue counties magically “found” ballots exceeding their own official number of voters 48 hours after the polls closed. Further raising eyebrows, the belated ballots have come with the rejection by those election authorities of any independent oversight in the recount. For some strange reason, this feels like deja vu all over again.

A midterm election season that appeared quite settled Tuesday night has suddenly entered a bitterly contested overtime, with Arizona’s Senate candidates locked in a tight race and trading the lead as votes trickle in – and Florida reprising its 2000 role as the center of a ballot-counting brawl complete with armies of lawyers and allegations of local corruption.
In Arizona, Democratic candidate Kyrsten Sinema suddenly took a narrow 9,600-vote lead over GOP opponent Martha McSally late Thursday, with some 400,000 votes left to count in a closely watched race that will determine the size and influence of the Republican Senate majority in January.
That was after McSally had consistently led Sinema since Election Day, and was ahead by 17,000 votes as of early Thursday.
