Recount Likely in Attorney General Race

61275039_4934cdf327Though the election was last week, Virginians still don’t know who the new attorney general will be.

As of this morning, CNN reports a very marginal lead for Mark Herring (D): 0.01 percent. This small margin is well within the realms of a recount petition; the State Board of Elections allows recounts for any difference of one percent or less. Today is also the deadline for all localities to finish their vote canvasses. The board will certify the election on November 25, and changes in the vote count are typical between the election and the certification.

Neither Obenshain (R) or Herring (D) is conceding the race and both camps are expecting a win.
