WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A Virginia court on Wednesday rejected a bid by the Democratic candidate in a disputed state House of Delegates race to reconsider its ruling that the election had ended in a tie, Washington's WTOP radio reported.

The court's decision means that a planned lottery-style drawing will go ahead as planned on Thursday to determine the winner of the race between Democrat Shelly Simonds and Republican David Yancey.
