Election Day is right around the corner; the Virginia State Governor’s race will be held on Tuesday Oct. 7. In addition to casting a vote for governor, citizens will also get to vote for candidates running for lieutenant governor, attorney general and their delegate to the VA General Assembly.
Newly inaugurated Attorney General of Virginia, Mark Herring, asked a federal court to reconsider the ban of same-sex marriage in the Commonwealth of Virginia. He argued that the ban was “unconstitutional and oppressive,” according to the New York Times.
Mark Herring won the Virginia’s attorney general race, according to the State Board of Elections. Mark D. Obenshain, the Republican candidate, lost the election by 165 votes, according to the Washington Post.
