Mark Obenshain will formally request a recount of the Virginia Attorney General's race.

Democrat Mark Herring pulled out on top in the race once the State Elections Board certified the results on Monday. 

Herring had a lead of just 165 votes.

Obenshain will hold a news conference Wednesday at 10 o'clock in the morning to discuss the recount.
