Virginia Attorney General recount watch …

Brian Schoeneman is the Republican Secretary of the Electoral Board for Virginia’s largest district, Fairfax County where the kerfuffle occurred regarding over 2000 votes that were not counted due to an optical scan machine malfunction. Another 1000 were added following the discovery of other errors on election night Nov. 5.

All eyes are on Fairfax County now with candidate attorney and party representatives glued to the recount.

Roanoke City’s recount was less dramatic and netted Mark Obenshain (R) ONE vote said a source tonight.

Ben Tribbett has the recount numbers as +1168 for Mark Obenshain (R) and +2558 for Mark Herring (D) and the margin at 632. Mark Herring 1,104,510 total votes and Mark Obenshain with 1,103,879 total votes.

Fairfax will continue their double check early tomorrow but as of 8:30 p.m. Schoeneman’s tweet gives Herring 366 additional votes.

Here in several tweets from Schoeneman in order of last to first came Tuesday night.
