(CNN) - The dates have been set for the recount to determine the Virginia attorney general's race, after Democrat Mark Herring beat Republican Mark Obenshain last month by a tiny margin of 165 votes out of 2.2 million.
The dates were first reported by NBC12 in Richmond and confirmed by both campaigns.
Because the margin was less than 1%, Obenshain was legally allowed to request a recount. And because the margin was less than .5%, the public will pay for the costs.
A three-judge court, sitting in Richmond, Virginia, set the dates and will supervise the recount.
