At the watch party for Arizona Democrats, District 9 Congressional candidate Kyrsten Sinema told the crowd attack ads had it wrong.

Accused in opponent Vernon Parker’s commercials of holding stay-at-home moms in low regard, Sinema had a message for them.

“I would like you to know I respect you and I love you,” she said. “I respect your decision to stay at home, just like my mom did.”

In a tight contest, Sinema is holding out hope that she might win.

“We will keep our heads high and pray for every vote to be counted,” said Sinema, a former state senator.
