Jesus! Bad night to be George Allen.
The new AP count showed Webb with 1,172,538 votes and Allen with 1,165,302, a difference of 7,236. Virginia has had two statewide vote recounts in modern history, but both resulted in vote changes of no more than a few hundred votes.
An Allen adviser says Macaca is “disinclined to request a recount” if the canvassing shows basically the same numbers. Formal concession could come tomorrow night.
