The Virginia recount is well underway, and so far, it's looking good for the Democrat.

According to Herring campaign attorney Marc Elias, Herring had seen an increase of 55 votes while state Sen. Mark Obenshain (R) had gotten 35 new votes according to early results. According to the Herring campaign that brings the total from 165 to 185 votes in Herring's favor.

Republican candidate Mark Obenshain remains cautiously optimistic, which always worries me.

"It is too soon to draw conclusions about the ultimate result in the Attorney General’s race," Logan said in a statement. "What we have seen so far today, as we expected, is that the numbers have already started to change, as the second, more thorough count is conducted. That’s why it was important to go through the recount, and to give Virginia voters the assurance they deserve in this historically close election.

Keep in mind, the votes they're counting exclude many provisional ballots cast that weren't defended under Virginia's current rules, and even more voters who were purged from voting rolls just before the election. If ever there was a case of "every vote counts", this is it.
