Various news organizations, including the Associated Press, have now called Virginia for Obama.
While we don’t care who wins, we are pleased to note that we’ve been pointing out since 10:36 p.m. why the numbers pointed to an Obama victory in the Old Dominion.
One caveat: The Virginia Public Access Project points out that perhaps 250,000 absentee ballots have yet to be counted. There are 28 localities that have yet to release absentee figures. Some of those are big localities that went for the Democrats — such as Fairfax County, Arlington and Alexandria — so perhaps that won’t change the outcome.
But the numbers may wiggle and jiggle over the next few days.
At the moment, the State Board of Elections shows Obama with a 62,940-vote advantage in the state, with the president sitting at 50.10 percent of the vote.
