Mike Pence just publicly congratulated Martha McSally for winning the #AZSen GOP primary.

None of the ballot counts have been announced in that race.

Pence deleted the tweet, but here it is. NYT live results showed 0% of AZ precincts reporting when he sent it.
McSally held the lead from day 1, so this was a safe tweet for Pence's team to prepare. But to prematurely fire it off to more than 3 million followers, in a year when election integrity is front-and-center, was a pretty significant mistake. Not a conspiracy, mind you. A mistake.
PS- The app I use for Twitter, called Tweeten, does not show any verification check marks on opened tweets (Ex: The WaPo tweet below). McSally congrats came from Pence's campaign account, which has 3.32 million followers.
