Cuccinelli Preparing for Recount

Tim Craig

Sen. Ken T. Cuccinelli II (R-Fairfax), who holds a 91-vote lead over Democrat Janet Oleszek, sent an appeal to GOP supporters at 3:30 a.m. today asking for donations to help him finance an expected recount.

Because Cuccinelli's margin is less than a half percent, Oleszek can ask for a state-funded recount. In his appeal, Cuccinelli says he is also looking for 10 volunteer lawyers who can help him oversee a district canvass of the votes cast in yesterday's election.

"The race isn't quite over yet. Janet hasn't called yet. and I haven't heard any fat ladies singing either," Cuccinelli said in his email. "As the only remaining Republican Senator from inner-Northern Virginia , I need your help today."
