The best info I have seen is from Dave Wasserman: [/break1]com/Redistrict]https://twitter.com/RedistrictDave Wasserman ‏@Redistrict 4hBy my math, Obenshain is likely to net another 700-800 votes from the three outstanding precincts. Herring's current "true" lead: 358 votes.Dave Wasserman ‏@Redistrict 4hSo, I expect Herring (D) to be 300-500 votes short pre-provisionals. But who knows how many counting errors/uncounted absentees there are.Dave Wasserman ‏@Redistrict 4hIf Ben Salem's results are in line with rest of Rockbridge County's, it'd give Obenshain 239 votes to Herring's 142, or approx 97 net.Dave Wasserman ‏@Redistrict 4hIf South Hill's results are in line with the rest of Mecklenburg County's, it'd give Obenshain 452 votes to Herring's 251, or approx 201 netDave Wasserman ‏@Redistrict 4hIf McGaheysville's results are in line with rest of Rockingham County, it'd give Obenshain 585 votes to Herring's 181, or approx 404 net.
Edit: It appears a recount is nearly certain.

The Dems really need to start learning that running unlikable candidates doesn't work.

I think the third is a notional one for provisional ballots.

The Dems really need to start learning that running unlikable candidates doesn't work.That's kind of the funny thing about this election in the end.Given the two candidates, you can say with conviction that had either party run a more likable or just better candidate, they'd have won, and easily.Had Cuccinelli and his allies not hijacked the primary process - one Bolling was likely to win - and replaced it with a convention, we'd probably have Governor-elect Bolling right now. And we'd certainly not have had Jackson as the Lt. Gov. nominee - he was relatively unknown until he wowed the convention with his "Everyone that doesn't think EXACTLY AS WE DO is a Satanist, and Obama is the Anti-Christ" speech.And he still got 45%!Just. Wow.

Obenshain up by about 200 as of last SBOE update, one precinct still out.
Edit: And now 100 percent reporting, same spread. I don't know when provisionals are done, but I would think that's a lot to make up.

Just live-checked the above for the AG race. 100% of precincts reporting, Obenshain leads by 219 votes yet MSNBC's Chuck Todd this morning said Herring had a 500-600 vote lead. Is MSNBC just flat wrong or are provisional/absentee ballots responsible for the difference?

If there was a lot of voter suppression in Virginia, Herring will win upon the counting of provisional ballots.It could be awhile.

From Tea Party News Network HINT: Progressive Democrats had to cheat to win.


VIRGINIA GOVERNOR RACE A HUGE VICTORY FOR THE TEA PARTY


The Virginia gubernatorial race was a huge victory for the Tea Party movement. Wait a minute! Democrat McAuliffe “won,” you say. How could this be a victory for the Tea Party movement and a positive precursor for the 2014 mid-terms? Here’s how: [/break1]tpnn.com/virginia-governor-race-a-huge-victory-for-the-tea-party/]http://www.tpnn.com/virginia-governor-r ... tea-party/





There is a thread at Free Republic that links to the above:

That's what's so great about the Tea Party. They would have also won if Cuccinelli had won too, also. I'm so happy for them.

I hope so too but I don't like the bandwagon that Gawker jumped on or idea that he is any sleazier than the current governor. It's not like any of the bandwagoneers thinks politics is beanbag and all politicians are clever, benevolent leaders. It's all me too journalism and :yankyank:

I don't like the idea of term limits, but in this case ...I just hope he doesn't screw it up for any future gubernatorial candidates of the Democratic persuasion.

The VA AG race is not over yet. The TeaTard Mark Obenshain had been building a lead to about 700 votes but Dave Wasserman says they found 2500-3000 uncounted absentee ballots in Fairfax. If these split like the rest of the precincts votes it could give the race to the Democratic candidate Mark Herron. Wassermann had been saying for a couple of days that the absentee ballot return rate in Fairfax looked suspiciously low. It appears he was correct.

According to state numbers, Fairfax reported an unexplainably lower number of absentee ballots cast in the 8th District than in the other two congressional districts.The county keeps track of how many voters request absentee ballots as well as the number who actually turn them in. In the 10th District, 88 percent of voters who requested a ballot actually voted, while 86 percent did so in the 11th District.But in the 8th District, the state board shows that only 50 percent of those who requested ballots — 4,168 out of 8,363 requests — actually cast ballots, a response rate not only lower than the other portions of Fairfax County, but lower than any other congressional district in the state, according to the Connolly campaign.[/break1]washingtonpost.com/local/virginia-politics/possible-discrepancy-in-fairfax-absentee-votes-could-affect-count-in-ag-race/2013/11/07/65108ad0-4825-11e3-bf0c-cebf37c6f484_story.html]http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/vir ... story.html
