Three candidates for the Arizona House of Representatives in District 26 are locked in a near-even heat, according to early results from the Nov. 2 election.

Upstart Republican Terri Proud held a 1-point lead over Democratic Rep. Nancy Young Wright, with Republican Rep. Vic Williams right behind.

With 19 of 90 precincts counted as of 9:24 p.m., Proud had 34.04 percent of the votes (24,987), Young Wright 33.01 percent (24,233) and Williams 32.78 percent (24,066 votes).

Two of the three would be elected to two-year terms in the Arizona House. The District covers much of Northwest Tucson east of I-10, extending into SaddleBrooke in Southern Pinal County.

In the District 26 Senate race, incumbent Republican Sen. Al Melvin led challenger Cheryl Cage by just over 5 points, 52.6-47.3 percent. With 19 of 90 precincts counted, Melvin had 26,956 votes, Cage 24,231 votes.
