Virginia AG Race Still Too Close To Call

The Associated Press had still not called the race for either candidate. Ballots will still be counted in the coming days.

Either candidate can request a recount of the votes after the Virginia Board of Elections meets on Nov. 25 and begins taking recount requests. The candidate requesting a recount must be within a 1 percentage point margin for a recount to happen. The last time such a close race resulted in a recount was in 2005 when Bob McDonnell (R), now governor of Virginia, faced Democrat Creigh Deeds in the Virginia attorney general race. 

Correction: This story originally stated that the last Virginia recount was in the race between McDonnell and Deeds for governor. In fact it was when they were running for attorney general.
