1. A 20 point swing in our direction is good.

If this is symmetric, we will win in a landslide in November.

5. Disappointing result for us tonight

But this isn't good news for the GOP's hope to hang onto the House this fall.

AP may have called it, but AZ Sect of State says...

"After the initial upload of early ballot results at 8:00 p.m., the Secretary of State does not expect further polling place results for an hour or more. This website will refresh automatically when new results are available from Maricopa County."

7. The NY times link I posted

says
Debbie Lesko has won the election.
And the AP has called it
But only by a 6% margin in a VERY Republican district bodes well for us in Nov.

Dr. Hiperneni was a great candidate and Lesko is (Sheriff Joe) Arpaio in a dress.

13. That area is tea party central

Old white people who sit in their recliners watching Fox all day. I was not surprised she won. My mother in law lives in that district and is a liberal but she doesnít discuss politics because there are some crazy right wingers in that area. When I go I keep quiet and keep to myself. If youíre not pure white you get major squint eye there. I get people staring at me trying to figure out my race when I go there. Itís gotten worst since the election of Twitler.

17. Examining the precinct map this morning

shows that the reddest areas are the rural fringes of the District, not the senior communities .

19. My mother in law lives in this area and it is very red

Been there at least 30 times it is red, tea party Twitler loving sea. There in September 2016 saw so many Twitler and Trent franks signs.

14. Trent Franks used to carry this district at 60-75%

Getting within 5% and making the GOP spend there to defend it is consolation enough.
