Breaking: Kloppenburg Concedes to Prosser

Breaking: Kloppenburg Concedes to Prosser

Just getting word from Wisconsin that JoAnne Kloppenburg has conceded the Supreme Court race to Justice David Prosser:

Assistant Attorney General JoAnne Kloppenburg said Tuesday that she was conceding the Supreme Court race to Justice David Prosser, ending what had been a contentious campaign that culminated in a rare statewide recount.

Kloppenburg made the concession at a Madison news conference just over a week after the state’s Government Accountability Board reported that final count numbers showed Prosser with 7,006 more votes.

Her decision to concede is expected to pave the way for Prosser to begin a new, 10-year term on Aug. 1.

If Kloppenburg had challenged the recount, Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson would have had to name a reserve judge to hear Kloppenburg’s court challenge. Court observers say it is likely that Abrahamson and the reserve judge would move as quickly as possible to consider the appeal.

Kloppenburg asked for the taxpayer-financed recount – the first statewide recount in two decades – after losing by 7,316 votes in the April 5 election. Waukesha County, a key stronghold for Prosser, finished its recount last.

Kloppenburg’s team had said in advance of Tuesday’s decision that they would analyze the election evidence and the law before making their decision.

Anyone how has followed this race closely knows that a forced recount would not only have held up the fact that Prosser won this race handily but would have also major voting irregularities in union dominated democrat counties which would not have bode well either the WI democrat party nor JoAnne Kloppenburg herself.

I’m actually a bit surprised the dems weren’t able to steal this race… good for Wisconsin for not letting this race go down like the Franakenrace in Minnesota!
