This is disappointing, but as I have said many times recently, the fact that a Democrat stood for what he believed in a recount is a very important fact. Other candidates will hopefully feel emboldened to do the same thing if they are in a close race or voter problems surface, or for any reason that is worthwhile.
The recount is over, and
the Circuit Court of Richmond has announced that Bob McDonnell has retained the certification by the State Board of Elections. Creigh Deeds has conceded.
If we are ever going to straighten out the voting problems in this country, we need to do more recounts, raise more questions, until get the answers we need.
