Canvassing Complete In Tight 11th District Race

FAIRFAX, Va. (WUSA) -- The counting of provisional ballots in the 11th Congressional district is over and incumbent Rep. Gerry Connolly's lead over Keith Fimian has grown as a result in the race for a seat in Congress.

The count is 111,630 for Connolly and 110,700 for Fimian.

Fimian's supporters are not ready to concede yet.

"We'll look at the incident reports, the malfunctioning machines. I don't think anybody is saying fraud. I think he'll (Fimian) will make a decision in the next 12 or 24 hours," Fairfax County Republican spokesperson Anthony Bedell said.

Fimian has the right to ask for all the ballots to be recounted. If that happens, we may not know the official winner of the race until mid to late December.
