Virginia: recount in one Fairfax senate race
The Washington Post Virginia Politics blog reports: Sen. Kenneth T. Cuccinelli II R-Fairfax , who holds a 91 vote lead over Democrat Janet Oleszek, sent an appeal to GOP supporters at 3:30 this morning asking for donations to help him finance an expected recount.
Because Cuccinelli s margin is less than a half percent, Oleszek can ask for a state-funded recount. In his appeal, Cuccinelli says he is also looking for 10 volunteer lawyers who can help him oversee a district canvass of the votes cast in yesterday s election. -- Sen.
