For weeks, the race between McSally and Sinema has been contentious and too close to call. Political observers consider it as one of most unpredictable elections in the history of Arizona.

One thing is for sure, the winner will become the first woman senator who will represent Arizona in the U.S. Senate. McSally and Sinema are seeking to replace retiring Republican Senator Jeff Flake.

Paul Bentz, a consultant for the Republican Party, told AZ Central, “This has been a very contentious race, a very negative election for both, a lot of negative advertising against both candidates…At the end of the day; each voter has to make up their mind and struggle with the result.”

According to the latest poll released by ABC15/OH Predictive Insights, McSally is leading Sinema by one point.

On the other hand, the Emerson College poll showed that Sinema has a one point advantage against McSally.

Arizona seeing significant midterm election turnout

Mike Noble, the Chief Pollster and Managing Partner at OH Predictive Insights, commented, “Arizona is seeing a historic midterm election turnout and Democratic voters are defying past historic early voting trends.”
