The US State of Arizona has elected its first female senator, after democrat Kyrsten Sinema beat republican Martha Mcsally in a tight race.

Ms Sinema is the southern state’s first democratic senator since 1994.

The win narrows the republican majority to four seats  51-47, with two more senate races remaining unresolved.

In Florida, a recount has been ordered by law after unofficial results fell within a 0.5% margin. Mississippi will hold a run-off vote later this month.
