The official statewide results in the race for the Supreme Court show Justice David Prosser winning re-election. The results certified by each county over the last two weeks show Prosser received 752,323 votes and challenger JoAnne Kloppenburg received 745,007 votes. That leaves a margin of 7,316 votes, a margin of 0.488-percent.
The margin is below the threshold for candidates to request a recount without paying for one. Candidates have until next Wednesday to file a recount petition, or else the Government Accountability Board will be able to certify the statewide results.
In a statement, the Kloppenburg campaign says it will focus its decision making on whether to make that request. The campaign says it will make an announcement on the candidate’s plans no later than the April 20th deadline.
