MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin Supreme Court hopeful JoAnne Kloppenburg says her campaign is weighing whether to seek a recount.
Completed county totals released Friday afternoon show incumbent Justice David Prosser with a 7,316-vote lead over Kloppenburg. She has until Wednesday to seek a recount. Her campaign would not have to pay for it since the margin between her and Prosser is less than half of one percent of the total votes cast.
Kloppenburg issued a statement saying her campaign will carefully weigh its options and make an announcement no later than Wednesday.
Prosser’s campaign manager had no immediate comment.
