UPDATED: NOV. 27, 1:15 P.M. – The closest statewide election in the history of Virginia politics is headed for a recount, and Henrico County officials are preparing to play their part.

The State Board of Elections Nov. 25 certified Democrat Mark Herring as the winner of the election, by a mere 165 votes over Republican Mark Obenshain – about seven one-thousands of one percent among the more than 2.2 million votes cast.

Today, Obenshain petitioned the Richmond Circuit Court for a recount, beginning a process that last was utilized in Virginia eight years ago in another race for attorney general. In that election, Democrat Creigh Deeds petitioned for a recount after losing to Republican Bob McDonnell by 323 votes, but the recount concluded that McDonnell had actually won by 360 votes.
