Wis. Court Challenger Raising Recount Dollars

Friday, 08 Apr 2011 05:03 PM


WAUKESHA, Wis. (AP) — The candidate on the losing end of Wisconsin's hotly contested state Supreme Court race has started raising money for a recount.

JoAnne Kloppenburg's campaign manager, Melissa Mulliken, said Friday that fundraising efforts for a recount have begun, but she stopped short of saying the candidate would request one. Mulliken refused to back down from Kloppenburg's declaration earlier this week that she won the race.

Tuesday's election between Kloppenburg and incumbent Justice David Prosser was too close to call. Unofficial returns showed Kloppenburg with a 204-vote edge. But in a stunning twist, the Waukesha County clerk announced Thursday she had not recorded 14,000 votes in the county. The new totals gave Prosser a 7,500-vote lead. Election officials are still canvassing results statewide.

Prosser's campaign manager didn't immediately return a message Friday.
