Brilliant idea to have an even number of Delegates with no way to break a tie. :brickwallsmall:

This is good news, but not the best news. If Virginia weren't so gerrymandered, they wouldn't be in this mess.

Flipped by a one vote margin.

Why it's important to vote!

3-judge panel refused to certify. Says one of the ballots was invalid. Race is now tied, and will be decided by coin toss. Loser of the coin toss can request second recount. From WAPO: https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/vi ... 02162b0fed
