And…It's Official

There was a lot of talk that Allen wouldn’t call for a recount. That’s not the official part – although he is still likely not to seek that course. But, the AP has called the Virginia race for Democrat Webb.

A Democratic takeover of the Senate is appearing likely after an ongoing canvass of votes in Virginia produced no significant changes in the outcome of the hard-fought race led by Democratic challenger Jim Webb, sources told CNN Wednesday.

Wednesday night, with Webb leading Republican Sen. George Allen by about 7,200 votes and the canvass about half complete, The Associated Press declared Webb the winner.

As always CNN is the cautious one (yes, we know from last night you slowpoke jackasses),

CNN does not declare a winner when race results are less than 1 percent and the potential loser may request a recount vote.

But it does look like the Allen rumors of concession that we heard earlier today are true,

A source close to Allen also told CNN that the senator “has no intention of dragging this out.”
