Eau Claire County recount for State Supreme Court complete

EAU CLAIRE (WEAU) - Eau Claire County has finished its recount for the Wisconsin State Supreme Court Race.

Not much changed.

Results gave justice David Prosser an additional nine votes and JoAnne Kloppenburg picked up 14 extra votes.

The statewide recount started on Wednesday.

Right now, the state accountability board wants the recounts wrapped up by May 9th, but there is a chance for an extension.

Kloppenburg was ahead by just a few hundred votes until it was found out that thousands of votes went uncouted in Waukesha County.

That put Prosser ahead by more than 7,000 votes.

The race is seen as a referendum on Governor Walker following his decision to strip most state union workers of their rights to collectively bargain.
