Herring Declares Victory; Obenshain to Hold Press Conference
With an unofficial tally giving him a slim lead, state senator Mark Herring (D) has declared victory in Virginia’s hard-fought attorney general race. Mark Obenshain, the Republican state senator in the contest, will hold a press conference at 2:30 today and hasn’t yet conceded the race. ABC 13 reporter Nick Ochsner tweeted that Herring has already sent out an e-mail announcing his transitional team. Time is reporting that Herring won the race. A recount looks very likely.
