Vote-lagging Va. AG candidate to outline plan

RICHMOND, Va. — Sen. Mark Obenshain says he’s going to outline his next steps in the nearly knotted race for attorney general.

The Harrisonburg Republican has scheduled a news conference for Wednesday in Richmond. Unofficial state election results show Democratic Sen. Mark Herring with a narrow lead over Obenshain.

After provisional ballots were tallied late Tuesday in Fairfax County, Herring declared himself the winner. Obenshain did not concede, saying he would wait for the state’s certification of the Virginia-wide vote. That occurs Nov. 25.

Obenshain did not say whether he would seek a recount.

The State Board of Elections on Wednesday showed Herring with a 164-vote lead.
