In Late Breaking News…Virgil Goode Wins!!!??

Despite projections by RK and NLS of a Tom Perriello victory, the Virginia State Board of Elections (SBE) is reporting that with 100% of precincts reporting in Va-5:

Virgil Goode: 157, 421
Tom Perriello: 156, 975

Difference of 446 votes.

I find this marginally stunning…when I headed out this AM Perriello led by ~1500 votes with four precincts out…maybe in my pre-caffeine haze I misread the numbers?

Anyway, the question is…will these numbers hold up? A margin like this means automatic recount…which seems to have become the status quo thing to happen in each Virginia election cycle.

Interesting times, indeed…
