Great coverage by WTOP’s Max Smith of the State Board of Elections meeting this morning. See some of his tweets, below. For more on the situation in HD-28, see my post here. As for HD-40 and HD-94, those currently stand (pending recounts) at Del. Tim Hugo (R) 15,110-Donte Tanner (D) 15,004; and Del. David Yancey (R) 11,601-Shelly Simonds (D) 11,591. The latter contest is most likely to “flip” to a Democratic win (and a possible 50-50 ties in the Virginia House of Delegates), since it’s within just 10 votes, but we’ll need to wait and see…

P.S. I’m told that a “contest” of an election only can happen after a recount. Ultimately, a “contest” apparently is decided by the House of Delegates, which until January 2018 remains 66-34 Republican. Hmmm….

P.S. Also check out these tweets by the AP’s Alan Suderman.
