Virginia's State Board of Elections has certified the results of the November 3rd general election. All three Republican statewide candidates won with comfortable margins.

Governor-elect Bob McDonnell received nearly 59 percent of the vote in defeating Democrat Creigh Deeds. Ken Cuccinelli got almost 58 percent of the vote for attorney general, and Lieutenant Governor Bill Bolling won re-election with nearly 57 percent of the vote.

The closest race was for a House of Delegates seat in Virginia Beach. The board certified Republican Ron Villanueva as the winner over incumbent Robert Mathieson by 14 votes out of more than 15,000 cast.

Mathieson's campaign manger Mark Henson says the Democrat will seek a recount.
