12:02 update:

Results are: 

Bulova 51,949

Herrity 50,732

I’m not sure how the votes decreased, as the margin was orginally reported as:

52,049 Bulova (50.03%)

50,732 Herrity (48.76%)

However, this was quickly changed on the SBE. Bearing Drift is reporting that a canvass might be held over tossed absentee ballots. Stay tuned for information!

Regardless of the outcome, this is still good for Republicans in Virginia, and Republicans in Northern Virginia. This is a good sign for the November 2009 General Elections.
