CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. -- With 200 votes separating him from Democrat Herb Snyder in the race for a 16th District state Senate seat, Republican Bob Adams said Wednesday the race is undecided given absentee and provisional ballots that could be counted in the race.
Snyder said Wednesday night he doubts there would be enough absentee and provisional ballots to affect his lead over Adams and predicted new ballots would only change the vote outcome by about 24 votes.
"I would say it's over," Snyder said of the race.
Snyder, who formerly held the seat, picked up 26,670 votes in Jefferson and Berkeley counties in Tuesday's general election compared to the 26,470 going to Adams, according to returns.
On Wednesday, Adams said in a news release that he looks forward to all the votes cast in the election being counted.
