Mark Herring campaign continues to push victory in attorney general race

The State Board of Elections website now has Republican Mark Obenshain with a narrow 17-vote lead over Democrat Mark Herring in the Virginia attorney general race.

It’s far from being over, but the Herring campaign continues to push the message that it has since the overnight hours of Election Night – that Herring will win once all the votes are counted.

“As the canvass has progressed since Election Day and we get an increasingly accurate picture of the results, Mark Herring’s share of the vote has grown steadily, and he has now overtaken Sen. Obenshain,” Herring campaign manager Kevin O’Holleran said Monday. “We remain confident that Mark Herring will be the next attorney general of Virginia. Counties and cities throughout Virginia will be certifying their results tomorrow, and it is important that every citizen’s voice is heard in this election.”
