Mark Obenshain, R-Harrisonburg, Republican candidate for Attorney General,  gestures during a new conference at the Capitol Wednesday, Nov. 13, 2013, in Richmond, Va.  The closest statewide race in modern Virginia political history is unlikely to end Monday, Nov. 25,  when the State Board of Elections certifies the votes for attorney general and other contests in the Nov. 5 election. The State Board of Elections puts Democrat Mark Herring with a 165-vote edge over Obenshain out 2.2 million ballots cast for attorney general. While he hasn’t said so, Obenshain has signaled he will seek a recount, and he could press the issue to the General Assembly if he wants to take it to the limits of the law.  (AP Photo/Steve Helber)
