Virginia State Board Certify Election Results

November 23, 2009

Virginia's State Board of Elections has certified the results of the Nov. 3 general election.

All three Republican statewide candidates won handily, so there
was no drama in Monday's review.

Governor-elect Bob McDonnell received nearly 59 percent of the
vote in defeating Democrat Creigh Deeds. Ken Cuccinelli
got almost 58 percent of the vote for attorney general, and Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling won re-election with nearly 57 percent of the vote.

The closest race was for a House of Delegates seat in Virginia
Beach. The board certified Republican Ron Villanueva as the winner
over incumbent Bobby Mathieson by 14 votes out of more than 15,000
cast.

Mathieson campaign manger Mark Henson says the Democrat will
seek a recount.
