Kloppenburg wins (for the moment)
on (1) Comment

As the Daily Page twitter account just pointed out, the last remaining precinct in Jefferson County has been reported. Appropriately, the margin was comically close: 378 for Prosser to 376 for Kloppenburg. That means Kloppeburg should finish the race 204 votes ahead.

Wow. I predicted Kloppenburg would win by a razor-thin margin, but I never imagined anything quite this exciting. The question remains: What happens in the Wisconsin Supreme Court if the recount process drags out for weeks, even months? Will the court simply operate with one less judge? And how will the inevitable legal challenges to the recount be handled if the court deadlocks, 3-3?
