After the congressional election in the US, a particularly competitive senate seat in the state of Arizona goes to the Democrats. Republican candidate Martha McSally admitted her defeat. She called her Democratic rival Kyrsten Sinema and congratulated her on her victory, McSally said in a video posted on the Twitter short message service.
After a „hard fight“ Sinema becomes the first female senator for Arizona. In the southern federal state, the final result for the Senate Post had lasted long after Tuesday’s election last week.
The success of the Democrats in Arizona does not change the fact that the Republicans of US President Donald Trump could defend their Senate majority.
