After that, there are a handful of areas favorable to Congressman McSally that will come in so the question will be whether Sinema will have built up enough of a lead to withstand the votes that will end up going in McSally's favor at that point.

On Friday, the Arizona Republican Chairman Jonathan Lines flat-out said that the Maricopa County recorder, Democrat Adrian Fontes, "cannot be trusted to administer elections in Arizona".

Four local Republican parties filed a lawsuit Wednesday night challenging the state's two biggest counties for allowing voters to help resolve problems with their mail-in ballot signatures after Election Day.

In Arizona unofficial results show Democrat Kyrsten Sinema with a lead of about 9100 votes over Republican Martha McSally out of about 1.8 million cast.

The lawsuit claims that election-related calls, like calls to voters to inform them that their mail-in ballots should be fixed, should only be made before the election. "We know there's urgency out there, but we want to get it right, not quick", he said.

Coconino County has about 9,500 votes left to count, per the elections department there.
