    I'd rather be up by 164 votes going into a recount than down. Since it took them a week to get everything to this point, I would think the carcass has been picked over and there won't be much of a change (absent shenanigans, and while that's not inconceivable, I think it highly unlikely). Remember most of the votes are electronic and aren't going to change. The GOP poured most of their money into this race and really made a desperate play but I don't know how far they will pursue it. Contests are pretty rare in VA elections, I can attest to that.

      Obenshain's retort would be: no, in 2005, there was a triple-digit net change from the locally certified results to the state-certified results. So, a week isn't enough.

      Assuming that is true, my surrebuttal would be that people all over the country have gone over these results, more carefully than I imagine happened in 2005.

      I look forward to taking a really close look at the amended results myself, but like you, I'm not expecting much change in the state canvass period.
