Via the New York Times, Sen. Mark Kelly and Sen. Catherine Cortez-Masto are both hanging on. Final results should be in tonight:

Democrat Mark Kelly won the latest batch of Maricopa County mail ballots by 13 points, expanding his statewide lead over Republican Blake Masters to nearly 6 percentage points. Masters’s chances hinge on winning an overwhelming margin among voters who dropped off their mail ballots on Election Day.

Catherine Cortez-Masto won the latest batch of mail ballots in Clark County, home to Las Vegas, by a 61 to 34 percent margin. It’s a pace that would allow Cortez-Masto to take the lead, if she keeps it up among the remaining mail ballots.

Things are tight -- as of early this morning, Laxalt was ahead of Cortez-Masto by 9000 votes. The remaining ballots in Clark County are expected to be heavily Democratic.

Same with Mark Kelly, whose margins are bigger than Cortez-Castro. Expect final results tonight. (Dave Wasserman has called the race for Kelly.)

In the Arizona governor's race, Katie Hobbs is ahead of the femme fascist Kari Lake by about 30,000 votes -- but that can change, depending on the Clark County ballots.

Democrat Adrian Fontes's lead in the secretary of state race continues to grow against whack job election denier Mark Finchem.

And I know no one will be happy about this, but:
