RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Democrats to seek recounts in 2 Virginia House races, leaving control of the chamber in limbo.

Republican A.C. Cordoza leads Democratic Del. Martha Mugler by 94 votes in District 91 and Republican Karen Greenhalgh leads Democratic Del. Alex Askew by 127 votes in District 85.

The margin in both races is under 0.5 percent, which allows losing candidates to request state-funded recounts.
