Remember that item yesterday about the importance of a single vote?
Here we go again. A court review of the one-vote recount victory o
f a Democrat in a race for House of Delegates added a single vote to the tally of the Republican. The race has now been declared a tie. In Virginia, that means the outcome will decided
by lot. Unclear when.
The outcome decides control of the Virginia House of Delegates. Republicans entered the election with a 66-34 lead. A Democrat win in this seat would make it 50-50. A Republican win would leave them in control at 51-49.
