Another Virginia recount ends with no change

By  | 

NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (AP) -- A recount election in Virginia has ended without a change in result: a Democrat unseating a Republican incumbent.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that a recount confirmed Wednesday that Democrat Dawn Adams defeated Republican Manoli Loupassi in the Richmond-area 68th state House district.

The recount took more than 12 hours and resulted in Adams growing her vote total from 336 to 347.

Control of the Virginia House is still unclear. The 94th District ended in a tie Wednesday, a day after a recount appeared to give Democrat Shelly Simonds the victory over Republican Del. David Yancey. The 28th district is subject to a recount and federal lawsuit.
