Guest Host: Marc Fisher

The top ticket races in Virginia were decided handily a week ago, but the question of who the next attorney general will be is still up in the air. Democrat Mark Herring has taken a lead of 163 votes over Republican Mark Obenshain after the initial vote count, which was finalized yesterday. A recount is likely once the State Board of Elections review is finished on Nov. 25. We get an update on where things stand and how the process is unfolding.
