State Sen. Mark Obenshain’s (R) lead in the Virginia attorney general’s race has fallen to just 17 votes over state Sen. Mark Herring (D), according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch on Monday.

Obenshain leads Herring 1,103,443 votes to 1,103,426 votes.

The latest numbers were a result of provisional ballots being counted following Tuesday’s Virginia elections. The attorney general’s race was too close to call on election night. At one point last week, Obenshain had a lead of more than 1,200 votes, according to the Times-Dispatch.

An official recount seems likely.
