Prosser Declared Winner In Wisconsin

On the brink: David Prosser(Darren Hauck/AP)

April 15, 2011

The election results in the heated Wisconsin Supreme Court race have been finalized following the county canvassing process, and Republican-backed Justice David Prosser has defeated the Democratic favored candidate, Assistant Attorney General JoAnne Kloppenburg by 7,316 votes.

During the county vote canvassing process following the April 5th election, a spreadsheet in a GOP-heavy county error netted Prosser over 7,500 votes, which helped him build his lead in a race contest that appeared much closer a day after the polls closed in Wisconsin.

The 7,316 figure is notable because it means Prosser's margin of victory falls within the one half of one percent threshold that allows Kloppenburg to request a recount at no charge. She must do so by 5 p.m. next Wednesday.
