RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) - Attorney General candidate Mark Obenshain (R - Virginia) conceded the Virginia Attorney General race to Democrat Mark Herring.

"It's become apparent our campaign is going to come up a few votes short," Obenshain said during an afternoon press conference at the Virginia General Assembly building.

Today's announcement comes one day after Herring widened his lead over Obenshain during the recount process. The lead is more than 800 votes. At one point the candidates were 165 votes apart. More than 2 million Virginians voted for attorney general in the 2013 election.

"Today is not the day to contest the process or question the results," he said.

    To all those deceived and voted Democrat: Welcome to Cali-ginia over the next 4 years. You asked for it, you got it.

    How is that Obamacare working out for you? Loosing your current health insurance? If you got to the Obamacare website, finding higher costs? much higher deductible? higher co-payments (if you ever get the deductible met), can you keep your doctors?

    Just keep proudly voting Democrat. . . . .

      I voted Democrat and I’m very happy. I have the same insurance as I had last year with no changes and my net worth is much higher today than when W left office. Actually it has allowed me to retire at age 51.
