Prosser, Kloppenburg each gain votes in initial stages of recount

Both Supreme Court candidates have gained votes in the statewide spring election recount as results slowly roll in to the Government Accountability Board.

With 96,930 votes recounted from 316 voting units, incumbent Justice David Prosser had 54,270 votes, a gain of 39 over the official county canvass total from those wards.

Assistant AG JoAnne Kloppenburg had 42,534 votes, gaining 17 over her canvass total and netting Prosser 22 votes, according to GAB reports. Prosser had a lead of more than 7,300 votes heading into the recount, but the votes counted so far are just a small fraction of the roughly 1.5 million cast on April 5.

Prosser campaign spokesman Brian Nemoir said the count is moving along efficiently, and he hasn't heard of any major problems.

"We go into this weekend having won this election, and we will have won this election when it's all said and done," he said.

The Kloppenburg campaign did not return a call from WisPolitics this afternoon.
