SURPRISE, SURPRISE – Democrats in Virginia Asking for Recounts to Prevent House from Going to the Republicans

Surprise, surprise, the Democrats want a ‘recount’ in Virginia.

The Democrats are not going to give up the House of Delegates in Virginia without a fight.  In the recent election in the state, Republicans won the governor’s race, the state Attorney General, the state Lieutenant Governor’s race and the House of Delegates.  But not so fast.  The Democrats need a few hundred votes to steal the House from the Republicans.

Newsmax reports:

Two incumbent Democrats who trail Republican challengers in close races in Virginia’s House of Delegates announced Tuesday that they will seek recounts, leaving control of the House in limbo.

Republicans have won 50 seats and Democrats have won 48. Republicans hold razor-thin margins in the two remaining races that are headed to a recount, according to certified results from the Nov. 2 election, leaving open a remote possibility of a 50-50 split in the chamber.

The Associated Press hasn’t called those two races: District 91, where Republican A.C. Cordoza leads Democratic Del. Martha Mugler by 94 votes out of 27,388 votes counted; and District 85, where Republican Karen Greenhalgh leads Democratic Del. Alex Askew by 127 votes out of 28,413 votes counted. The margin in both races is under 0.5%, which allows losing candidates to request state-funded recounts.

Recounts in Virginia are overseen by three-judge panels. It is unclear how long the process will take, but in 2017, when partisan control of the House came down to a pivotal Hampton Roads seat, the recount was not held until late December.

No election is safe when Democrats are involved.
