Republican J. Marshall Coleman said Wednesday that he intends to seek a recount of the closest governor's race in Virginia history, but Democrat L. Douglas Wilder was already relishing the historical dimensions of his apparent victory. "It starts coming home to you, something happened last night," Wilder said at a news conference the morning after he claimed victory as the nation's first black elected governor. Wilder was clinging to a lead of 5,500 votes out of more than 1.7 million cast.

An initiative asking the Seattle school board to halt busing of students to achieve racial balance was declared approved, by a margin of 50.4% to 49.6%, after absentee ballots were counted. The unofficial count in last Tuesday's election had it losing by 70 votes. The school board must vote on whether to implement the initiative. If it does, schools will receive about $4.5 million a year from sales taxes for "magnet" school programs designed to achieve voluntary integration.
