Wisconsin Watch Cont’d
Continuation of this post.
[10:40] According to the AP results, 10 of the 12 remaining Milwaukee precincts have come in along with the 8 previously outstanding precincts from Ashland County. Prosser still leads, now by less than 400 votes. One outstanding precinct from Dane County (73-23 Kloppenburg), one from Jefferson County (58-42 Prosser), and six from Sauk County (55-45 Kloppenburg) are potential sources of big swings in a 400-vote margin.
[10:45] Kloppenburg now up, by 140 votes, mostly as the result of Sauk County’s remaining precincts. Now the question is whether the remaining Jefferson precinct gives Prosser a margin over Kloppenburg that is 140 votes greater than the remaining Democratic leaning precincts, including 2 from Milwaukee and 1 from Dane (Madison).
[10:55] In one of those the county-level changes while the totals don’t occurances that happen from time to time , Dane county now shows all in, with Kloppenburg’s lead holding at 140.
[10:59] Kloppenburg now up by over 350. The Jefferson County precinct that is outstanding has to have a large population that breaks big for Prosser for him to retake the lead, plus 2 Milwaukee County precincts are still out. (Note: I don’t know how absentee ballots factor into the results at this point)
[2:30] With one precinct left to report, Kloppenburg is up by 206 votes. The one precinct is in Jefferson County, so I’d expect that number to tighten, but something along the lines of a 70-30 Prosser majority from a large precinct would be needed to flip the result.
