PHOENIX — Arizona’s Election Day remains in play for two races Thursday, a congressional seat and state superintendent of public education.

Early and provisional ballots were still being counted, affecting the Congressional 2nd District between incumbent Democrat Ron Barber and Republican challenger Martha McSally.

McSally led by about 1,300 votes with all 194 precincts reporting.

The latest delay has been tabulating Pima County ballots.

Technical issues interfered with a smooth voting night in Cochise County, where the results from early-ballot counting machine didn’t match the hand count. The early ballots were sent to Graham County to be machine counted again.

Republican Diane Douglas led Democrat David Garcia with 51 percent of the vote. All 1,566 precincts were reported but early and provisional ballots were still being counted.

Douglas, who ran on one issue — repealing Common Core — was ahead by about 26,000 votes midmorning at the Secretary of State’s unofficial results webpage.

Garcia, an Army veteran and professor at Arizona State University, earned the endorsement of three Republicans who had held the superintendent position.
