Prosser ahead in Wisconsin

Reports had Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice David Prosser's challenger, JoAnne Kloppenburg, ahead by 204 votes out of about 1.5 million, suggesting a long and painful ballot litigation that might have to go to a Wisconsin Supreme Court where three of the six remaining justices are heavily partisan. But Thursday, Waukesha County announced that it had not counted 14 thousand ballots that gave Prosser a 7000-vote lead. That doesn't change the possibility of litigation, but it does provide some cushion that makes it less likely that the election will be decided by a fluke of the courts.
