Rumble A disputed ballot in a key Virginia House of Delegates contest has been awarded to the Republican candidate, creating a tie with his Democratic opponent. The election, which will determine the balance of power, will be resolved by picking a winner at random. David Yancey, who has served as a member of the Virginia House of Delegates since 2012, was initially believed to have won the November election by 12 votes, but a recount on Tuesday determined that his Democratic opponent, Shelly Simonds, had won by just 1 vote.
