This isn't over by a longshot Virginia GOP

Virginia Republican's name drawn from bowl, giving him "win"

RICHMOND, VA. By luck of the draw, incumbent Republican David Yancey won a Virginia state House of Delegates race so close that its outcome was determined Thursday when an elections official pulled his name out of a ceramic bowl.

I've seen a few elections decided this way. Usually at the local level where the number of voters is small.

What's left to be challenged on this one?

Ahhhhh yes, once again "random chance" favors the Republicans. Pardon me for being skeptical.

So boys and girls, what lesson can we take from this?

Your vote does matter. One vote can be the difference between control of a state legislature, or not.

I would say this is probably the final end of it.

Drawing straws, or name from a bowel, is forever binding, sealed with old powerful magic.
