Deeds gaining on McDonnell.
The numbers keep shifting in the still-unresolved race for Attorney General, and Democrat Creigh Deeds just keeps gaining on Republican Bob McDonnell. UVa Democrats president David Wasserman just commented:
Everyone look at the sbe.vipnet.org site and look at the magically changing numbers in the AG race, which seem to be updated every five minutes by the SBE. MCDONNELL’S LEAD WAS JUST CUT IN HALF! The reason?
Henrico County can’t count.
In the heavily black Fairfield precinct, they recorded 16 votes for Creigh instead of 610, so that was just a 594 vote swing. There’s still hope for Mr. Deeds, folks…
The gap has shrunk a great deal in the past day, from 1,486 votes to just 960. The Deeds campaign is extremely confident that they’ll come out ahead — I can only assume it’s because they know about irregularities like the Fairfield vote and, as they get those ironed out, they project they’ll come out ahead.
