RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The State Board of Elections is set to certify the results of Virginia's Nov. 5 election, including the cliff-hanging race for attorney general.

The board is meeting Monday in Richmond. All eyes will be on the race to succeed Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, who failed in his Republican bid for governor.

Democrat Mark Herring has a 165-vote edge over Republican Mark Obenshain, who has not said if he'll seek a recount if Herring's lead holds.

Both men have dug in, with each announcing transition teams. Virginia has no automatic recount, but the trailing candidate can seek a recount at taxpayer expense if the margin between winner and loser is less than one-half of 1 percent.

A recount must be requested within 10 days of the board's certification of the vote.
