Senator John McCain is projected by the Associated Press and Politico to retain the Senate seat he’s held for nearly three decades. McCain faced Democratic Congresswoman Ann Kirkpatrick in a matchup that was expected to be close.

With 30 percent reporting, John McCain holds an eleven-point lead, which is enough to predict a McCain win. With 52.8 percent of the vote, McCain is currently outperforming Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. Trump leads Arizona but with just 49.2 percent of the vote.

Senator McCain survived a tough primary fight against Dr. Kelli Ward before securing the victory against Kirkpatrick.
