Talk about a close call. Judge David Prosser and Joanne Kloppenburg are separated by a few hundred votes so this election is far from over in Wisconsin.

Supreme Court 99%

David Prosser 733,074 50%

Joanne Kloppenburg 732,489 50%

Just think how difficult it is to unseat an incumbent Justice and then weigh in that it's not an election for Congress or during a Presidential election. Greta did her best to clean up after her boy, Prosser.

UPDATE: Kloppenburg has taken a narrow lead of 369 votes. Is a recount coming?

Assistant Attorney General JoAnne Kloppenburg took a very narrow lead over Justice David Prosser in the state Supreme Court race early Wednesday, after a hard-fought campaign dominated by political forces and outside interest groups.

As of 9:45 this morning, the Associated Press had results for all but 5 of the state's 3,630 precincts and Kloppenburg had taken a 369 vote lead after Prosser had been ahead most of the night by less than 1,000 votes.

That close margin had political insiders from both sides talking about the possibility of a recount, which Wisconsin has avoided in statewide races in recent decades. Any recount could be followed by lawsuits - litigation that potentially would be decided by the high court.
