Recount for VA Attorney General's Race Underway in Lynchburg

Posted:

Lynchburg, VA - The rest of the state is joining the recount for the Attorney General's race Tuesday.

In Lynchburg, the recount is underway at the Circuit Court Clerk's office on Court Street.

Officials say as of 10:30 a.m., four out of 18 precincts were completed.

We were told there are four recounts teams at work, and they will continue counting until Tuesday evening.

All localities have until Wednesday to complete the recount. Then, a three judge panel will decide any challenged ballots.

Republican Mark Obenshain petitioned for the recount after he trailed Democrat Mark Herring by 165 votes out of more than 2.2 million cast in the November 5 election.

The Herring camp said late Monday early recount numbers show the Loudoun County state senator widening his lead over Obenshain by 305 votes.
