Three weeks after the fact, the last of this year’s elections has been decided. Republican Bob McDonnell has been certified the winner in Virginia’s attorney general race. McDonnell beat his Democratic opponent, R. Creigh Deeds, by only 323 votes out of 1.94 million cast. McDonnell is claiming the mantle of attorney general-elect, while Deeds is expected to ask the Richmond Circuit Court for another recount, which could take until Christmas to complete.
Democrat Tim Kaine won Virginia’s gubernatorial election, while Republican Bill Bolling won Lt. Governor.
