A Senate race in Arizona just came to an end with disappointing results. One week after voters went to the polls for the midterms, Republican Martha McSally has conceded Arizona's Senate race to Democrat Kyrsten Sinema.
McSally made the announcement in a video posted to Twitter. She said: "I just called Kyrsten Sinema and congratulated her on becoming Arizona's first female senator after a hard-fought battle."
This is a race that has been closely watched by people all over the nation. Sinema's victory was called on Monday night after her lead grew insurmountable, CBS reports.
"I am so honored that Arizonans chose our vision of a better Arizona. And now it's time to get to work," Sinema said in a victory speech Monday night.
Sinema is a former liberal activist. However, she became a centrist after being elected to Congress. Her win seems to indicate that Arizona may now be a swing state.
Sinema succeeds Republican Senator Jeff Flake, who opted not to run. Flake took to Twitter after her win was announced to congratulate her.
As did other members of the United States government:
Are you shocked that Sinema won? Let us know in the comments. In other news, please pray for the family and friends of a NASCAR legend who just passed away.
