Earlier today, a three-judge court presided over the recount of the ballots cast in House District 82 and reaffirmed that Del. Kim Taylor has won re-election.
House Speaker Todd Gilbert issued the following statement:
“The results of today’s recount have confirmed what we knew shortly after Election Day: that Delegate Kim Taylor will be returning to the House of Delegates.
“Kim put in the hard work day after day, bringing home victory in what was the third-most expensive House of Delegates race in Virginia history. I’m proud of the massive effort and resources that our combined Republican team was able to put forward to help her execute her campaign and secure another term. I also want to thank Governor Youngkin for his historic investment in the effort to increase early and absentee voting by Republicans. There’s no question that the Secure Your Vote Virginia effort played a significant role in this victory.
“Congratulations to Delegate Taylor! I look forward to working with her over the coming term to advance our shared conservative values and help improve the lives of all Virginians.”
