Midterms Are Officially Over: McSally Beats Barber After Recount

McSally, a former Air Force combat pilot, won by 167 votes out of about 220,000 cast, according to the Associated Press.

The November midterms are finally over.

Republican Martha McSally has defeated Democrat Ron Barber after a lengthy recount, finalizing the last outstanding race of the 2014 congressional elections.

McSally, a former Air Force combat pilot, won by 167 votes out of about 220,000 cast, according to the Associated Press.

Barber, a former aide to Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, narrowly defeated McSally in 2012.

The result in the Tuscon-area district means that Republicans will control 247 seats in the United States House, their largest majority in 83 years.
