Kloppenburg Declares Victory Over Prosser in Wisconsin
Supreme Court Election
by John Nichols
Unknown sixth months ago, unviable six weeks ago, first-time candidate JoAnne Kloppenburg declared victory Wednesday in her challenge to a Wisconsin Supreme Court justice closely aligned with Governor Scott Walker.
It was a narrow but stunning upset win for Kloppenburg-204 votes out of almost1.5 million cast-that is all but certain to lead to a recount fight.
Wisconsin’s Elections Were a Referendum on Walker
By Matthew Rothschild
We had quite an election in Wisconsin on Tuesday.
The turnout was enormous for a spring election, and all eyes were on the state supreme court race, which pitted the incumbent justice, conservative David Prosser, who is closely allied with Governor Walker, against JoAnne Kloppenburg, an old friend and neighbor of mine. She is a wise and kind person and an experienced assistant AG, but she had no name recognition going in.
Amazingly, the race was neck and neck all night long and even as I speak the eventual winner is unclear and it seems all but certain that there will be a recount.
