Two of the last three elections for Attorney General have gone to a recount. In 2005, we narrowly won; and in 2013, we narrowly lost. This year, the polls in the statewide race are neck and neck.
Despite strong headwinds, our candidates have closed the gap, but we need help to ensure a fair election and to be prepared for a recount in one or more of the three statewide races. There are also many important races for Virginia's General Assembly where the Democrats are contesting more Republican-held seats than they have since Republicans secured their first post-Reconstruction majorities in the late 1990's.
Below is a list of statewide polls which show how close this race really is:
September 25 Wason Center (Margin +/-4)
Gillespie 41%; Northam 47%
Vogel 42%; Fairfax 46%
Adams 42%; Herring 47%
September 21 Fox News (Margin +/-4)
Gillespie 38%; Northam 42%
September 18 Suffolk University (Margin +/-4)
Gillespie 42%; Northam 42%
