Va. Democrat Simonds concedes tied Newport News race

RICHMOND — Democrat Shelly Simonds has conceded the tied 94th District race out of Newport News that was decided by a random drawing last week.

Simonds, who had suggested she might seek a second recount or contest the election, said she did not see any paths forward to challenge Republican Del. David Yancey’s re-election.

She tweeted about 45 minutes before the General Assembly convened that she was conceding with “great disappointment.”
