Election Analysis: 'McSally ... just about perfect candidate'

What will governance look like now that Southern Arizona's races are decided?

Arizona selected Republicans for president, U.S. Senate, and five of the state's nine U.S. House seats, but Southern Arizonans returned a Democratic majority to the Pima County Board of Supervisors.

In this edition of Metro Week, we ask local journalists to analyze those results, and more, from voters' decisions this week, and what those decisions mean when the winners take office in a few months.

Joining the journalists roundtable:

  • Dan Shearer, editor, Green Valley News and Sahuarita Sun: What Republican Martha McSally's margin of victory means in Arizona's 2nd Congressional District, and what the Democratic Board of Supervisors means for your tax bill.

  • Linda Valdez, columnist, Arizona Republic: What new Maricopa and Pima sheriffs mean for residents in both counties, and why the incumbents lost those seats.

  • Christopher Conover, reporter, Arizona Public Media: Why thousands of ballots are still being counted throughout the state, what the new Republican on the Pima County Board of Supervisors wants to change.

  • Dylan Smith, editor and publisher, TucsonSentinel.com: Why McSally beat Democrat Matt Heinz in fundraising and votes, why some Tucson-area legislative races are too close to call, and more on the sheriff's race.
