Perriello is Officially Declared Winner

This afternoon, a three-judge panel in Charlottesville rendered a decision on the recount in the fifth congressional race between soon-to-be-ex Representative Virgil H. Goode, and Rep-Elect Tom Perriello , upholding the results certified on November 24th. Despite a last-ditch PR attempt by Goode to cast Perriello as attempting to disenfranchise service men and women, Perriello rode above Virgil’s rancorous politicking, with the final recount coming in at +727 votes for Periello. Congratulations Rep-Elect Perriello! I know you'll do the fightin' Fifth proud.
