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:
