Virginia Democrat asks court to reconsider decision to tie House race

Democrats file motions to suspend judges' decision to declare tie in Newport News Va. House of Delegates race

The ballot in question had bubbles filled in for both Simonds and Yancey, but the bubble for Simonds was crossed out.

Simonds is running againt Republican Del.

Election officials in Newport News, Va., examined ballots that a computer failed to scan. Then after the recount he lost by one. Republicans said the unknown voter had selected every other Republican on the ballot and meant to vote for Yancey. She's saying instead that it was too late to raise a challenge when Yancey's lawyers spoke up. The first name pulled out of the bowl would be declared the victor.

At stake is which bills are taken up and moved for votes.

If you want to know in real time whether Republicans will control the House of Delegates in 2018, you're in luck.
