The results are finally official in the 91st District Virginia House of Delegates race.

This week, a Hampton Circuit Court certified that Republican A.C. Cordoza beat incumbent Del. Martha Mugler (D-Hampton) by 64 votes out of more than 27,000.


Lawyers for both candidates gave arguments for all of the ballots before judges resolved them in court before the results were certified.

This means Republicans increase their majority in House of Delegates 52-48.

Mugler trailed Cordoza by 94 votes out of 27,388 counted in initial race results. The 91st District race was one of two state House races that triggered recounts this year.

Neither candidates were in Hampton Circuit Court today for the recount proceedings.
