Pro-Second Amendment Congressional candidate Martha McSally (R-AZ-2) leads pro-gun control incumbent Ron Barber (D-AZ-2) by 36 points in Arizona’s District 2 race, but a “glitch” in a voting machine has momentarily stalled the vote count.
This is the seat that was held by gun control proponent Gabby Giffords and a race in which Giffords has campaigned relentlessly for Barber.
According to Tucson’s KVOA channel 4, the voting machine with the technical problem is in Cochise County. Election officials are taking the voting data to Graham County, where the same type of voting machine can be used to count the remaining votes.
Election officials faced a similar vote-counting “glitch” during August primaries.
On September 20 Breitbart News reported that Giffords’ attacks on McSally were so egregious that they backfired. The Arizona Republic called the attacks “base and vile.”
