|Virgil Goode, Jr.||157,958||49.85%|
I am permitting myself some serious optimism. I think it’s over. With all precincts apparently having finished their checking of the votes totals (“canvassing”), Mr. Perriello has won. The recount is to be endured, if Mr. Goode decides to pursue it. I’d’ve liked to have been at the 3:00 press conference.
