In Arizona Congressional District 2, Ron Barber, Gabby Giffords successor, is facing off against Martha McSally, the tea party candidate. The race has been razor tight with thousands of ballots waiting to be counted. As of the most recent update, Barber is now leading by almost 600 votes.

Barber....123,650
McSally...123,064

Provisional ballots have still not been counted in this race. There are tens of thousands of those that still need to be counted.

We are also currently leading in 12 out of the 17 "tossup" races, all of the "leans dem" races and five of the "leans GOP" races for the house, per Huffington Post.

The senate race is also tightening a tiny little bit.

Note that there were over 160,000 provisional ballots in the state. So a lot of those are left to be counted.

6:49 PM PT: Barber is now behind, but have faith, he can definitely come back and provisional ballots still need to be counted.
