State elections officials on Monday certified the results of the recount of the April 5 election for state Supreme Court, declaring that Justice David Prosser has been re-elected to another 10-year term on the court by 7,004 votes.
“I look forward to taking the oath of office and continuing to serve in a fair and independent manner as a member of the Wisconsin Supreme Court,” Prosser said a statement.
Assistant Attorney General JoAnne Kloppenburg asked for the recount after narrowly losing to Prosser.
She now has the option of suing over the results if she wants to contest the election. Any legal action must be started by May 31.
Kloppenburg campaign manager Melissa Mulliken last week said Kloppenburg would spend the coming days deciding what to do. Kloppenburg has portrayed the election as including widespread anomalies.
