Pima votes push Barber win over McSally to 2,371

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) - More Pima County vote counts have increased Democrat Ron Barber's win over Republican challenger Martha McSally in the 2nd Congressional District above 2,300 votes.

Barber declared victory Saturday and McSally conceded when he built a 1,400 vote lead after 11 days of vote counts.

New results posted Sunday pushed his insurmountable lead to 2,371.

Voters decisively picked Barber to fill out the remainder of former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords' term in a special election in June and he was seeking a full term on his own.

Pima County says it counted more than 11,500 ballots Sunday and expects to complete counting on Monday. The district also includes Cochise County, which finished its tally last week.
