Herring now leading undecided AG race by 117 votes

Buffalo_01.jpgIn the topsy-turvy and still undecided Virginia Attorney General’s race where a recount is almost certain, Democrat Mark Herring is now leading by 117 votes, wiping out a 17-vote lead by Republican Mark Obenshain after the Virginia Board of Elections published new figures.

The turnaround is just the latest tally as checks and rechecks continue and still uncounted provisional votes in Democratic-leaning Fairfax County could give Herring even more than a lead but the final totals will almost certainly be close enough to force recount.
The Board of Elections has until Nov. 25 to certify its results and then the losing side can request a recount.
