All 100 percent of the precincts appear to be counted in the Wisconsin Supreme Court race, which has become a proxy political battle over Republican Gov. Scott Walker's anti-public employee union legislation. And while a recount now appears certain, the very stunning result is that incumbent conservative Justice David Prosser -- who should have been re-elected easily as of just a few weeks ago -- now narrowly trails his liberal-backed challenger, Assistant Attorney General JoAnne Kloppenburg.

The local NBC affiliate in Milwaukee reports that the final precinct has reported: the town of Lake Mills gave Prosser a net pickup of only two votes: Prosser 366, Kloppenburg 364.

Adding those figures to the Associated Press's current spreadsheet (which continues to be corrected and adjusted on a running basis), Kloppenburg leads by 204 votes, out of nearly 1.5 million cast.

As WisPolitics reported this afternoon, Team Prosser is gearing up for a recount:

2. Another post indicates that a bunch of absentee ballots
in Dane co have yet to be counted-that may be further good news for Kloppenberg

7. Woo-fuckin'-hoo
Working Americans are starting - just starting - to clean the cobwebs from their long-dormant brains. Many years to go, let's hope the trend continues.

9. Would have been better as a landslide
I will be happy if she wins, but it would have been better as a landslide so that there was clear repudiation of the repukes behavior. With this so close I am afraid they will spin it as continued support for their position in the market place of ideas.

10. Prosser needs to do the right thing and concede. For the good of Wisconsin.
A recount would tear the state apart. Wisconsin has been through enough. It's time to move forward.

11. Not that I disagree with you
Edited on Wed Apr-06-11 03:14 PM by Chipster
Not that I disagree with your sentiment, but this is just the beginning. We have almost a year to go to recall Walker, and a lot of trench work between now and then. We might as well face it: WI is front and center in the fight against fascists.
