Rep. Ron Barber (D-Ariz.) is narrowly leading in race for Gabby Gifford's former House seat


Ron Barber is currently leading Martha McSally by 289. She was ahead last week, and thousands of ballots still have to be counted from at least two counties.

The Hill:

Rep. Ron Barber (D-Ariz.) is narrowly leading his Republican opponent, Martha McSally, in a race that has yet to be called nearly a week after Election Day.

Fingers crossed, nails bitten.

    Why is this taking so long?  Is it because of provisional ballots?  If so, why are there so many that it is holding up election results for a week (or more)?
