Virginia GOP completes sweep of elections with House win


Associated Press

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) — A three-judge panel overseeing a recount in a close Virginia Beach state House race has upheld the Republican candidate’s victory. The decision on Friday reaffirms the GOP’s takeover of the chamber. The certified results from the Nov. 2 election showed Republicans leading in 52 districts out of 100. After Democrats requested recounts in two races, that left open the remote possibility of a 50-50 split. The second recount is still expected to proceed next week. But Democrats no longer have a shot at undoing the GOP’s majority after the judges certified that Republican Karen Greenhalgh had won the 85th House District.
