Virginia's 11th District Still Undetermined

Play associated audio

UPDATE: In Northern Virginia's 11th Congressional District, Democratic incumbent Congressman Gerry Connolly is claiming victory, while his Republican challenger Keith Fimian is saying the race is not over.

Fimian took to the stage at the Mason Inn in Fairfax, and he told a small crowd of faithful supporters who remained to get ready to get back to work tomorrow because there are still votes yet to be counted--and he's right about that.

Two precincts in Fairfax County each had a machine that malfunctioned. Those two machines have been sealed up and will be taken to the electoral board tomorrow morning. Election administrators say they will be able to open up those machines and get accurate counts.

Those two precincts don't seem to concern the Connolly campaign because the congressman addressed his supporters in Falls Church, saying voters have spoken and he has been reelected.

As things stand, Connolly has just 500 more votes than Fimian.

This is the second try for Fimian--Connolly defeated him two years ago. But the political landscape has changed since then.

The district covers much of Fairfax County and parts of Prince William County, and is sandwiched between a reliably Republican district and a reliably Democratic district.
