RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Virginia's nearly knotted race for attorney general is showing no signs of coming to a conclusive end anytime soon.
Trailing by 164 votes, Republican Mark Obenshain met reporters in Richmond on Wednesday and announced his transition team. He did so hours after Democrat Mark Herring announced his own transition team.
Herring declared himself Virginia's next attorney general Tuesday night after local election boards certified results from the Nov. 5 general election.
Obenshain called that move by Herring premature, noting that the State Board of Elections won't certify Virginia's voting until Nov. 25 and the razor-thin margin could change after that.
Obenshain also did not rule out a legal challenge. He said he would decide after the state's certification whether to seek a recount.
