RICHMOND, Va. — With a preliminary hearing scheduled for Wednesday, a three-judge panel has been named to oversee the recount for Virginia attorney general.

Republican Mark Obenshain is seeking a recount of the Nov. 5 general election in his pitched race with Democrat Mark Herring, who leads him by 165 votes.

Obenshain’s office says besides the previously designated Richmond Circuit Judge Beverly W. Snukals, the chief justice of the Supreme Court of Virginia has named two other jurists to the so-called recount court. They are Joseph W. Milam Jr. of the 22nd judicial circuit in western Virginia and Judge Junius P. Fulton III of the 4th judicial circuit in Norfolk.

Obenshain’s camp said it will propose at Wednesday’s hearing that Dec. 18 and 19 be set as dates for the recount.
