The owner of a Waukesha County window cleaning business is the official winner of a state Assembly primary by just 29 votes. An official canvass of the 5,200 ballots was completed yesterday and Adam Neylon was declared the winner in the 98th district.
Neylon gained three votes from the Election Night total, giving him 2,006 votes to 1,977 for Pewaukee Police Chief Ed Baumann. Baumann gained four votes as a result of the canvass. He has until 5:00 pm Monday to ask for a recount, but he would have to pay for it himself, since the margin is more than 1 1/2 percent.
The April primary is expected to give Neylon the Assembly seat, since no Democrats are on the ballot. Neylon is in line to replace Paul Farrow, who was elected to the Senate in a special balloting last December.
