Wisconsin Supreme Court candidate JoAnne Kloppenburg addressed her supporters at 12:30 a.m. this morning at the Edgewater Hotel in Madison, Wis.
Earlier today, Kloppenburg declared victory over incumbent Justice (and self-described fan of Governor Scott Walker) David Prosser after the Associated Press gave her a 204-vote lead. The total showed Kloppenburg with 740,090 votes and Prosser with 739,886. A recount is expected.
