The court-supervised recount in Virginia’s HD-94, where Democrat Shelly Simonds trailed Republican incumbent Del. David Yancey by just 10 votes after election day, began at 8 am this morning.  Currently, Democrats have 49 seats and Republicans have 51, so if we flip HD-94, we’re at 50-50 in the House of Delegates and some sort of negotiated power-sharing arrangement. So…as Joe Biden might say, this is a big f’ing deal! LOL Please use this as an open thread to post anything you’re hearing. I’ll update as I get information.  Thanks.

P.S. Note that there are 24 precincts in HD-94.
