    Should Kloppenburg demand a recount?

    State Supreme Court Justice David Prosser beat challenger JoAnne Kloppenburg by 7,316 votes, or less than half of one percent — slim enough to allow a Kloppenburg to request a free statewide recount.

    Kloppenburg's campaign was considering the move, saying they had until 5 p.m. Wednesday to decide.
    The recount would cost taxpayers about $1 million. Statistical probability of overturning that kind of lead: nil.

    Your vote in the poll -- and your thoughts behind it. Thanks!

    The circumstances are fairly suspicious. Not sure a recount would favor her, given the current situation, but it should darn sure be done.

    That close should be recounted, it's important to get it right.

    it would seem so, based on your own (and your handle). my boyfriend's sister went to Florida and the only thing I wanted was a picture of the baby sea turtles scampering into the ocean. She was told it would be impossible, but on her last day there she found 1 little guy hustlin' his way to the water line and managed to snap a few pictures for me. I couldn't find any cute sea turtle pictures, so I thought this little guy would suffice.

    Re: Should Kloppenburg demand a recount?

    From the article, it appears the decision is basically whether Kloppenburg & crew think a 7k+ count against them is possible to overcome with a recount – those kind of numbers would seem to be a serious miscounting error, I would think – but perhaps I am wrong.

    Was there some controversy over this election previously?

    I have this nagging feeling there was, and I forgot about it already…

    They supposedly found an "error in counting" in one county that resulted in an additional 7500 votes in favor of the incumbent.
