One vote in recount gives House Democrats 50th seat

Anderson said the judges took the filled in bubble for Yancey, which was not crossed out, as intent to vote for the GOP House candidate. If the loser of the coin toss is unhappy with that result, he or she can seek a second recount.

An apparent one-vote Democratic victory in a Newport News-area House of Delegates race turned into a tie Wednesday, creating an unprecedented scenario in which control of the House will be decided by state officials essentially drawing a name out of a hat.

While Lt. Gov. -elect Justin Fairfax can break tie votes in the state Senate, which is split 21 to 19 in Republicans' favor, a tied House of Delegates will likely force some kind of power-sharing agreement between the two parties.

A three-judge panel must formally certify the recount vote, which is set to happen on Wednesday, Armitage said.

Schiphol airport evacuated as man held
The situation is now safe, the Marechaussee police service said , and the suspect had been detained and removed from the scene. The incident, which sparked a brief evacuation of parts of the airport, was not being treated as an extremist attack.

Control of the state House will likely be determined by the victor of the race.

After a recount Tuesday had Democrat Shelly Simonds declaring victory by a margin of one vote over Republican Del. He says the voter had chosen Republican candidates in every other race. "There weren't any ballots going to the judges", Simonds said, adding with a laugh: "You can call me landslide Shelly as long as you call me delegate".

"They put two names in, somebody shakes it up, and they pull it", said State Board of Elections member Clara Belle Wheeler. "Whether it was knocking on doors, posting on social media or donating a few dollars, it all made a difference and added up to an wonderful outcome on election day". Her win gives the chamber a 50-50 split between the parties instead of the 51-49 advantage the GOP would have had if Yancey had held on. It was the slimmest margin among the four House races that sparked recounts.

In a recount today, Democrat Shelly Simonds emerged a single vote ahead of Republican incumbent Del.

Nazareth cancels Christmas celebration over Trump Jerusalem move
Trump's decision spurred thousands of Palestinians to take to the streets in protests and clashes with Israeli security forces. Since Trump's controversial announcement last week, at least 12 rockets or mortars have been fired from Gaza towards Israel.

The caucus vote comes after a day after Democrats appear to have secured a 50-50 tie in the lower chamber with a one-vote election victory after a recount in a Newport News House district.

"We're now 50-50", Democratic Governor Terry McAuliffe told the Associated Press.

"I knew it was going to be a roller coaster ride and the counts were going to change and votes were going to shift around. but I had faith in the system and final outcome", said Simonds, who stayed off Twitter to avoid anxiety.

The recount is the first to flip the results of a Virginia House race in at least 20 years, according to the Virginia Public Access Project.
