"(CNN) Republican Debbie Lesko, a former state senator, is leading Democrat Hiral Tipirneni, a physician, in a special election race for the US House seat in Arizona's 8th Congressional District.

With 74% of the expected vote in, Lesko holds a single-digit lead over Tipirneni, 52.7% to 46.9%. Donald Trump carried the district by 21 points in 2016.

The seat was opened when Republican Rep. Trent Franks resigned in December amid sexual harassment allegations.

Democrats didn't think they would win the race. Arizona's 8th Congressional District has all the hallmarks of a place Republicans should easily win: Voters in the predominantly senior and white district, where there are around 78,000 more registered Republicans than Democrats, backed President Donald Trump by 21 percentage points in 2016."
