PHOENIX (AP) — One congressional race remains undecided in Arizona -- the contest in southeastern Arizona's 2nd Congressional District between Democratic incumbent Ron Barber and Republican challenger Martha McSally.

With more than 267,000 ballots counted, Barber has a lead of about 700 votes over McSally.

However, thousands more ballots remain to be processed.

The Sierra Vista Herald (http://bit.ly/ZxgjDd) reports that Cochise County elections office director Juanita Murray says 6,600 ballots remained to be tabulated as of Monday.

Cochise County results so far favor McSally over Barber by a 3-to-2 ratio.

The rest of the district is in Pima County where Barber slightly outpaces McSally in results so far. Pima County says it counted 3,400 early ballots Monday and still must process 4,000 early ballots and 27,000 provisional ballots.

Barber is the hand-picked successor to Gabrielle Giffords.
