Less than an hour before the General Assembly was to convene, Democrat candidate Shelly Simonds conceded the 94th district to incumbent Republican David Yancey. From the Washington Post:
“It is with great disappointment that I am conceding the election to David Yancy,” Simonds tweeted. “I have conceded because I do not see any legal pathways forward and I want representation for the 94th district today.”
Simonds had until January 16th to request another recount although there was some dispute as to whether or not that recount would be granted. She has vowed to run against Yancey for the third time in 2019.
