MILWAUKEE (AP) — The campaign manager for Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice David Prosser says he’s open to a recount of Waukesha County votes.
On Thursday Waukesha County Clerk Kathy Nickolaus said “human error” resulted in the city of Brookfield votes not being counted in their Tuesday tally to The Associated Press. The change gave Prosser a 7,500-vote edge over challenger JoAnne Kloppenburg.
Prosser’s campaign manager, Brian Nemoir, told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that it’s fine if a recount is done there to satisfy heightened interest. But he said it will only affirm their margin of victory.
Kloppenburg’s campaign has made an open records request with Nickolaus. Campaign manager Melissa Mulliken said they are trying to get relevant documentation to get more of explanation as to what happened.
