State Senate race in Racine still too close to call

http://www.cbs58.com/news/local-news/State-Senate-race-in-Racine-still-too-close-to-call-157739555.html

RACINE -- The state Senate race in Racine is still in a holding pattern.

Less than 800-votes separate incumbent Van Wanggaard and his democratic challenger John Lehman.

So will there be a recount? Wanggaard has not made it publicly known if he'll push for a recount of votes. He has until the end of the month to decide whether to challenge Lehman's apparent victory.

For now, Lehman and his fellow democrats are proceeding as if he is in fact the new state Senator. If it sticks, Lehman would be the only democrat to force out a republican, Tuesday in the six recall races.

1. it's not really over yet...

Wanggaard has not conceded defeat. He did not talk to reporters Wednesday, but he did release a statement about the possibility of a recount.

3. Surely, there's an unopened, but gaping, bag somewhere to be found.

If Lehman loses on a recount, I would sure be suspicious. But then, I've been suspicious of all elections since Bush won.
