Ballots are still being counted in Pinal County and not all Pima County precincts have reported, but Republican showed up strong for their candidates in District 11.

Maricopan Bret Roberts is on course to join Mark Finchem in the state House of Representatives. Both have almost 38,000 votes each in the unofficial count. Democrats Hollace Lyon and Maricopa High School teacher Marcela Quiroz trail by around 10,000 votes.

“It’s been a long year and a half,” said Roberts, who is finishing his term as constable this year. “Those days that you get tired and sometimes you don’t necessarily want to leave your house, you just keep going.”

He spoke outside WingStop, where some local Republicans gathered on election night.

That included Glenn Morrison, who has a strong lead over Democrat Andre LaFond and is likely to be the next constable for District 4.

“Hard work pays off,” Morrison said. “It was wonderful meeting so many people in Maricopa.”

If the numbers hold up for Roberts, he will be replacing Vince Leach, who opted to run for Senate in LD11. That effort looks be successful, with Leach having a large lead over Democrat Ralph Atchue.

With 99 percent of precincts reporting and thousands of ballots remaining to be counted, the unofficial results as of 6:30 p.m. Wednesday:
