Update: Obenshain up 219 with 100% reporting per SBE. Some questioning if all absentee or provisionals counted. Recount coming.

Senator Mark Herring (D) is holding onto a lead of 541 votes over Mark Obenshain (R)  by Wednesday early morning. Two precincts are outstanding according to the Virginia State Board of Elections. In Mecklenberg and Rockingham counties the South Hill and McGaheysville precincts hold the winner of the Virginia attorney general race in their results. Whichever candidate wins there will be a recount with less than a one percent margin.

Mark Herring released the following statement regarding his lead in the race for Attorney General:

“Election Day is over and I am honored to have a majority of Virginians cast their ballots for me for Attorney General. Just before 2 a.m., we took a several hundred vote lead to become the next Attorney General of the Commonwealth of Virginia.

“I am grateful to have earned the support of so many Virginans all across the Commonwealth and look forward to continuing to work on their behalf.”
