Senator Edd Houck’s race against extremist Bryce Reeves has come down to the wire and control of the Virginia State Senate hinges on the result. After a counting error was corrected, Senator Houck was 86 votes behind Reeves based on unofficial results—well within the range for a recount. Senator Houck’s campaign has released the following statement:
The race for this seat remains too close to call. Wednesday morning canvasses have yet to be held, and provisional ballots throughout the district have yet to be counted. Also, there were several significant discrepancies during Tuesday night’s tabulation that deserve further attention during the canvassing and certification process. We look forward to monitoring this situation throughout the district to ensure that every vote is fairly and accurately counted, and we expect that Senator Houck will ultimately prevail in the final outcome.
Obviously, this race is not over and there is a lengthy process that we must go through to determine the winner. Albemarle Democrats look forward to ensuring that every vote is counted and we’re confident that when the dust settles that Senator Houck will have the lead.
