Republican Martha McSally's lead over Democratic Congressman Ron Barber in Congressional District 2 tightened to just 341 votes today after Pima County tabulated another 3,355 ballots.
More than 7,300 provisional ballots have been transferred to the Pima County Elections Department for verification, with an unknown number still in the possession of the Pima County Recorder's Office, according to Pima County spokesman Mark B. Evans. Rodriguez expects to finalize the process for nearly all provisional ballots by tomorrow and the Election Department will likely be able to count most of them by the end of the day.
We're told that just two ballots remain to be counted in Cochise County.
As McSally's lead shrinks, her legal team threatened legal action to disqualify some provisional ballots earlier today.
