FAIRFAX - Del. Tim Hugo (R-40) was behind Donte Tanner (D) by 68 votes on Election night. Then, as canvassing continued at the elections offices the day after, Tanner was behind by 115 votes. All the results were unofficial as The Connection sent pages to press on Wednesday at 2 p.m.

If Tanner were to win, it would provide one of the more surprising victories of the night, showing the reach of the wave Democrats were riding this year.

The canvas will be complete in the two counties (District 40 spans Fairfax and Prince William counties) on Monday, Nov. 13 and results sent to Richmond for certification, said Steve Hunt, an election official in Fairfax.
