Wisconsin Race Too Close to Call

In a result fitting of the high-stakes political maneuvering in Wisconsin over the past few months, the Wisconsin Supreme Court race that many had labeled a referendum on Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) is still "too close to call," with incumbent Justice David Prosser holding a narrow lead of less than 600 votes over challenger JoAnne Kloppenburg, according to the AP.

Recount coming? The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel notes that "Either candidate can request a recount once the votes have been officially canvassed. If the margin between the candidates is less than 0.5% - as it is likely to be in this race - the state charges nothing to conduct the recount."

Meanwhile, Democrats won Walker's old county executive seat with the defeated Republican citing the protests at the state capitol for his defeat.
