Former Arizona state Sen. Kyrsten Sinema has won her race for Congress, narrowly beating Republican candidate Vernon Parker in the newly drawn 9th Congressional District. Ballot counting has continued since Election Day, but Sinema’s growing lead led The Associated Press to call the race in her favor. She becomes the first out bisexual elected to Congress, where she will join six other openly gay and lesbian colleagues. "We're thrilled for Kyrsten. She's a dynamic leader and she'll be a strong voice for her community and for all LGBT Americans," said Chuck Wolfe, president and CEO of the Victory Fund.
