>> I am so honored that Arizonans chose our vision of a better Arizona.>> A winner has been named in the closely watched Arizona senate race. Democrat Kyrsten Sinema defeated Republican Martha McSally Monday night, becoming the state's first Democratic senator in 30 years, and the first woman to ever represent the state in the US Senate.
>> Arizona rejected what has become far too common in our country. Name calling, petty personal attacks, and doing and saying whatever it takes just to get elected.>> The 42 year old Congresswoman and former social worker will replace GOP Senator Jeff Flake, who did not seek a second term.
And while Sinema may have won the election, her opponent's concession speech won the Internet. McSally, a Congresswoman and former Air Force pilot and her adorable dog congratulated Sinema on her win.>> And I am convinced Arizona is the best state in the country and our best days are still yet to come and I'm gonna continue to pray for our success.
>> But despite the flip, Republicans will maintain control of the Senate.
