Looks like Virginia has finally gone to the Democrats
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Democrats will control both the House and Senate after Jim Webb won a Senate seat by about 7,200 votes in Virginia, The Associated Press reported Wednesday.
Webb will have a formal press conference Thursday morning to officially declare victory, an aide said.
However, a source close to Sen. George Allen says the Republican incumbent wants to make clear he "has no intention of dragging this out."
A victory by Webb, a former secretary of the Navy, would give Democrats a 51-49 seat advantage.
