PHOENIX — Senate hopeful Martha McSally’s Twitter speech conceding the race to Kyrsten Sinema has been lighting up social media, with comments applauding her civility and others upset with her decision.

The Republican congresswoman from Tucson posted a concession speech Monday shortly before 5 p.m. She led Sinema, a Democrat, when Election Night ended, but the race had been too close to call.

After McSally’s video went online, responses began popping up.

One poster on Facebook wrote:

Thank you for rising above the nastiness of today’s politics. You are a class act and will make Arizona proud in another seat soon.”

Other supporters wished McSally had waited out the rest of the outstanding 172,000 ballots.
