Three days after the election, the Arizona Senate race has been called by most mainstream media outlets.

With 83 percent of the vote in, incumbent Senator Mark Kellly (D-Az.) currently leads by 5.7%, or about 123,000 votes.

While a large portion of the vote that still has to come in is supposed to favor Republicans, the media has called the race for Kelly, believing that Republican challenger Blake Masters cannot make up the deficit.

While Kelly is likely to win, it is still possible that his margin of victory will be close.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) shifted $9 million away from the Arizona Senate race to protect incumbent Lisa Murkowski (R-Ak.) against Trump-backed challenger Kelly Tshibaka.


Trump-backed Kari Lake is trailing her opponent, Democrat Katie Hobbs by a narrower margin than Masters, meaning she still could win the Governor’s race.

The Arizona Senate race has been called for Democrat incumbent Mark Kelly, who beat his Republican challenger Blake Masters.

With 83 percent of the vote reported, Masters has received 46.1 percent of the vote while Kelly has thus far received 51.8 percent of the vote.

Kelly, who originally took office after defeating his Republican opponent Martha McSally in 2020, has reliably voted in line with President Joe Biden’s policy agenda, including on key issues like border security and immigration.

Kelly had a significant lead in the polls for much of the race, with the incumbent holding a six-point lead as recently as late September, according to the Real Clear Politics polling average. The race became tighter throughout the month of October, with the polling average eventually only showing Kelly with a one-point lead as of the fourth of November.
