Current Delegate Jason Miyares won the nomination for Attorney General.  He beat Chuck Smith a Virginia Beach attorney.  Mr. Smith has asked for a re-count, but the Republican Party of Virginia does not quality for a recount because it was far wider than the 1% threshold.  Miyares received 51.7% to Smith’s 48.3%.
