SBE Certifies Election Results in Attorney General's Race

Richmond, VA - Democrat Mark Herring has maintained his lead in the Attorney General's race over Republican Mark Obenshain, after the state certified the election results Monday.

The State Board of Elections completed the certification Monday, keeping Herring's 165 vote edge over the GOP's Mark Obenshain.

Obenshain has 10 days to decide whether he'll seek a recount.

Virginia has no automatic recount, but the trailing candidate can seek a recount at taxpayer expense if the margin between winner and loser is less than one-half of 1 %.

Both men are seeking to succeed Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, who failed in his Republican bid for governor.
