A preliminary hearing is taking place this morning in Virginia on the recount for attorney general.

Republican Mark Obenshain is seeking a recount of the Nov. 5 election. His opponent Democrat Mark Herring, leads him by a slim margin of 165 votes.

A three -judge panel is overseeing the recount, led by Richmond Circuit Court Judge Bererly Snukals. The chief judge of the Virginia Supreme Court has appointed two other judges to the recount court, Joseph Milam of the 22nd judicial circuit in western Virginia and Judge Junius Fulton of the 4th judicial circuit in Norfolk.

Obenshain supporters say the Republican is proposing that Dec. 18 and 19 be set as dates for the recount during today's preliminary hearing.
