The Arizona Republic - - Front Page -

In Ari­zona, it’s tra­di­tional to wait for days for the out­come of tight races.

As of Fri­day night, The Ari­zona Repub­lic es­ti­mated there were more than 360,000 bal­lots statewide yet to be counted from Tues­day’s elec­tion. More than 2 mil­lion bal­lots have been counted.

At 5 p.m. Fri­day, Mari­copa County re­leased the re­sults for more than 79,000 pre­vi­ously un­counted bal­lots.

Here are some of the key races still in doubt:

Ari­zona sec­re­tary of state

Re­pub­li­can busi­ness­man Steve Gaynor has held a lead over Demo­crat Katie Hobbs since Tues­day, but the lead has been shrink­ing. Gaynor, a busi­ness­man, leads Hobbs, the Ari­zona Se­nate mi­nor­ity leader, by 10,609 votes.

Ari­zona su­per­in­ten­dent of pub­lic in­struc­tion

Demo­crat Kathy Hoff­man was ahead of Re­pub­li­can Frank Riggs, with 31,886 votes sep­a­rat­ing them on Fri­day. Riggs, a char­ter-school de­vel­op­ment ex­ec­u­tive, held a slim lead over Hoff­man, a school speech ther­a­pist, from Tues­day night un­til Thurs­day evening.

Ari­zona Cor­po­ra­tion Com­mis­sion

Demo­crat San­dra Kennedy moved ahead of Re­pub­li­can Rod­ney Glass­man in the race for two seats on the Ari­zona Cor­po­ra­tion Com­mis­sion. Re­pub­li­can Justin Ol­son is the lead­ing vote-get­ter. Kennedy is 1,672 votes ahead of Glass­man. This is the tight­est statewide race at the mo­ment.
