Richmond, VA ( –   Incumbent Republican David Yancey is the winner of the 94th House District out of Newport News.  The name was drawn out of a bowl this morning here in Richmond, after a recount left both candidates tied at 11,608 votes.  Democratic Challenger Shelly Simonds is expected to ask for a second recount.  This now puts the House of Delegates at 51-49 (although really, 50-49 with the recount looming) when session starts on Wednesday.
