MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice David Prosser is declaring victory over challenger JoAnne Kloppenburg.

Final county tallies show Prosser with a 7,316-vote lead over Kloppenburg. State election officials are not declaring a winner in case Kloppenburg decides to request a recount. She has until Wednesday to call for one. Her campaign said she’s weighing her options.

Prosser campaign manager Brian Nemoir issued a statement saying the will of the electorate is clear and Prosser has been re-elected. He said Prosser extends his appreciation and respect to Kloppenburg and her “spirited campaign.”

Unofficial returns initially gave Kloppenburg a slim lead over Prosser. But the Waukesha County clerk announced she had failed to report 14,000 votes, which swung the election for Prosser.

  1. Wisconsin voters lost their ballots when the opscans came in. If it’s electronic, it’s no election. See “Hursti Hack”. When a very questionable partisan is holding tallies on an outdated, unsecured personal computer, and lying about manipulations of those tallies in Microsoft Access, it’s not legitimate. It’s not remotely valid.

  2. Why does no one mention that the City of Brookfield actually reported on election night and that the initial figures that were reported by the City match those in the final county canvass? If you believe the votes were “manufactured” at the county levelage, then the alternative is that no one from the City of Brookfield voted. It is also lost on most people that the AP does not have the power to declare election winners and that the preliminary vote totals the press reports are just that: preliminary.

    Incompetence? Yes. Fraud? Absolutely not.
