As tabulations came to a close across the state, voters wait for final results to be certified by Nov. 28.

Arizona has seen closer races.

Democrat Kathy Hoffman has already conceded to Republican Tom Horne as has 8,968 more votes in the race for Superintendent of Public Instruction.

More eyes will be on the race for attorney general as Democrat Kris Mayes leads Abe Hamadeh by just 510 votes. That is still a wider margin than some other recent races.  

Political consultant Paul Bentz cited a 2016 state primary.

“In more recent history, Christine Jones vs Andy Biggs I believe came down to less than 20 total votes. So, 510 is a very narrow margin, but we have seen it in other races in the past," he said. 

85,595 were cast in that primary, compared to the 2,508,714 cast for that race.

Bentz added with that 510 vote cushion, it is unlikely that Hamadeh will overtake Mayes in a recount.
