McSally wins Arizona House seat after recount
>" PHOENIX (AP) - Republican Martha McSally has won a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives by 167 votes after a recount in the nation's last undecided congressional race from the midterm elections.
The results released by a judge Wednesday mean Republicans will hold their largest House majority in 83 years. House Republicans will control 247 seats to Democrats' 188.
McSally led Democratic incumbent Ron Barber by 161 votes after all ballots were counted last month. But the margin was so slim that it triggered an automatic recount.
McSally is a former Air Force combat pilot who won in her second effort to beat Barber.
Barber took office in 2012 after Rep. Gabrielle Giffords stepped down following a shooting that wounded both her and Barber."<
