Boysko to call for recount in 86th District contest

Democrat Jennifer Boysko will request a recount in her contest against incumbent state Del. Tom Rust (R-86th), possibly as early as Tuesday, a Boysko campaign spokesman confirmed Monday.

Boysko lost to Rust by 54 votes out of more than 20,700 cast in the House of Delegates 86th District race Nov. 5. The district, which has been represented by Rust since 2002, is comprised mostly of Fairfax County with sections of Sterling included.

With the state Board of Elections certifying the 2013 races Nov. 25, Boysko has until Dec. 5 to call for a recount.

The 2013 race was the Democrat's first bid for public office. A former legislative aide to Fairfax County Supervisor John Foust, Boysko grew up in Alabama and Arkansas and has lived in Herndon since 1996.
