Control of Virginia Senate May Hinge on Recount

"Get ready for another recount, with control of the state Senate in the balance," the Richmond Times Dispatch reports.

"With all precincts reporting, Del. Lynwood W. Lewis Jr. (D) on Tuesday night led Wayne Coleman (R) by just 22 votes out of 20,379 cast in a special election for the Norfolk state Senate seat of Lt. Gov.-elect Ralph Northam."

"The state Senate is now split with 20 Democrats and 20 Republicans. The lieutenant governor has the tiebreaking vote on most issues."
