The Democratic House of Delegates candidate who is now tied with the Republican incumbent for the 94th District in Newport News is challenging the election recount that resulted in a tie. But a day later, a three-judge panel certified the tie with 11,608 to 11,608 in the 94th District in Newport News.

In a letter to the State Board of Elections, Simonds' lawyers said they have filed a petition with the recount-panel, and are waiting for them to rule on their motion for suspension and motion for reconsideration of the ambiguous ballot.

The Virginia State Board of Elections plans to break the tie picking the candidates' names out of a bowl on Wednesday. This was substantial because with her win the Virginia House of Delegates would be at a 50/50 political party split.
