No recount for close Virginia House race

By Washington Post editors

Kerry D. Bolognese, the Republican lobbyist who narrowly lost a Virginia House race Tuesday night by just 37 votes out of more than 11,000 cast, has decided against requesting a formal recount, reporter Derek Kravitz writes on the Virginia Politics blog.

Democrat Eileen Filler-Corn, a Northern Virginia lobbyist, received 5,758 votes to Bolognese's 5,721, a difference of less than half a percentage point in the 41st House District race in central Fairfax County. Virginia law permits a losing candidate to request a recount if the difference is less than 1 percent.
