Democrat Herring Widens Lead in Va.'s AG Race

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP)- Democrat Mark Herring has widened his lead over Republican Mark Obenshain in Virginia's nail-biting race for attorney general.

With Herring up by 163 votes over Obenshain, the Democrat declared himself the victor, while Obenshain refused to concede Tuesday. He said he will wait for the State Board of Elections to certify the Virginia-wide vote on Nov. 25.

The seesaw race saw Obenshain emerge election night a week ago with a slight edge over Herring, only to see that lead evaporate over the past several days as election officials certified provisional, or contested, ballots.

The weeklong election drama ended in Fairfax County, Virginia's largest, as election officials certified provisional ballots. When they were done late Tuesday, Herring had added an additional 160 ballots under his name while Obenshain collected 103.
