Ballot count continues, 2 races still too close to call

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Two races in last week's election remain too close to call.

The first is the Congressional District 2 race, in which Democratic incumbent Ron Barber has slightly increased his lead over Republican challenger Martha McSally.

The margin is no up to about 700 votes.

In the City of Tucson, Proposition 409, a ballot initiative that would generate extra money for fixing potholes, is currently passing by about 80 votes.

A news release from Pima County said another 3,421 early ballots were counted on Monday and about 4,000 remain to be counted. This includes about 1,294 ballots from eligible military and overseas voters that are being processed for later tabulation.

The count resumes tomorrow afternoon.
