McSally pulls ahead of Barber, too close to call

Posted: Updated:
TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now/AP) -

Democrat Ron Barber went up against Republican Martha McSally to represent Arizona's Congressional District 2 in the House of Representatives.

The race was too close to call Wednesday. McSally's lead over democrat Ron Barber is shrinking to just 420 votes. Which is down from 1,300 earlier today. 

Voters picked Barber to replace former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords in a special election in June. He's her former district director and has touted his lengthy history in the district, his moderate views and his strong backing for veterans and border security.

McSally is a former Air Force pilot making her first run for political office. She said she wanted to cut government regulation, repeal the new health care law and work to balance the federal budget.

Voters in CD 2 have been all over the map, electing both republicans and democrats.

The district covers parts of Tucson and Pima County and all of Cochise County.
