Pamela Powers Hannley, a progressive voice for Arizona
The Associated Press and other national media outlets have declared Congressman Raul Grijalva the winner in Arizona’s Congressional District 7 race. Although Congresswoman Gabrielle Gifford has increased her lead over Tea Party challenger Jesse Kelly, the CD8 race is still too close to call.
Three propositions— 110, 112, and 203– also are still too close to call. Prop 110 would make it easier to sell or lease state lands. Prop 112 would shorten the length of time for citizens to file petitions. Prop 203 would make medical marijuana legal in Arizona.
Prop 203 gained some ground, but there are still thousands of ballots to count. According to Arizona Public Media this morning, counting will continue through the weekend. Counties have until November 12 to finalize their election tallies.
