Goode Asks For Recount
As expected, the outcome of the race in the 5th congressional district is too tight for Republican Virgil Goode, so has formally asked for a recount.
The final tally left a margin of only .24%, less than the 1% gap necessary for the State to pick up the tab.
Tom Perriello who currently stands as the certified congressman-elect has said that he will “respect” Goode’s right to a recount, but that he doesn’t expect the outcome to change.
If you are wondering just how the recount process will work, the Franklin News-Post has an excellent breakdown of what to expect.
