The blockbuster race to replace retiring U.S. Sen. Jeff Flake is too close to call, with Republican Martha McSally holding a razor-thin lead over Democrat Kyrsten Sinema as Election Day drew to a close.

With about 810,000 ballots left to be counted across the state, McSally led by about 22,000 votes.

Control of the Senate won’t hinge on the outcome of the race between the two congresswomen. Republicans picked up seats in Florida, Indiana, Missouri, adding to their lead in the Senate, where they now hold at least 51 seats. Arizona was one of just a small handful of pickup opportunities Democrats had in the Senate this year.

The winner of the race will replace retiring Sen. Jeff Flake, who opted not to seek a second term after angering many of his fellow Republicans with his vocal criticism of Trump.
