Howard Dean and Ronnie Musgrove raising funds for Democrat in Virginia’s AG race

Former Democratic Govs. Howard Dean of Vermont and Ronnie Musgrove of Mississippi issued a fundraising appeal for Democrat Mark Herring Thursday in the latest sign of national interest in Virginia’s historically close race for attorney general.

Herring, a state senator from Loudoun County, leads Republican Mark Obenshain, a state senator from Harrisonburg, by 164 votes out of more than 2.2 million cast. The State Board of Elections will certify the results on Nov. 25.

Both candidates are raising funds to pay for teams that would monitor a potential recount that could last into late December.

Also Thursday, a spokesman for Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli dismissed concerns raised by Sen. A. Donald McEachin, D-Henrico that Cuccinelli should not be sending fundraising appeals for Obenshain’s potential recount.
