Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli (R) had not called Democrat Terry McAuliffe after losing the Virginia gubernatorial race and had no plans to do so as of late Wednesday morning, according to a report in The Washington Post.

Cuccinelli has already publicly conceded he lost the race.

At a press conference later on Wednesday McAuliffe said he had still not heard from Cuccinelli.

“I have not had the opportunity yet to speak to the attorney general,” McAuliffe said. 

The fact that Cuccinelli has not called underscores how bitter the Virginia gubernatorial race was for both candidates. Much of the advertising by both Cuccinelli and McAuliffe’s campaign was negative. And despite public polling ahead of Election Day showing McAuliffe with a wide lead over Cuccinelli, the now governor-elect only narrowly defeated Cuccinelli.
