The following is an April 6th news release from "The Kloppenburg for Justice Committee," the campaign organization for JoAnne Kloppenburg:
With 100% of Wisconsin precincts reporting according to the Associated Press, Assistant Attorney General JoAnne Kloppenburg has won Tuesday's Supreme Court race.
The Associated Press tally shows Kloppenburg received 740,090 votes to 739,886 votes for the incumbent David Prosser, a margin of 204 votes.
"We owe Justice Prosser our gratitude for his more than 30 years of public service," Kloppenburg said. "Wisconsin voters have spoken and I am grateful for, and humbled by, their confidence and trust. I will be independent and impartial and I will decide cases based on the facts and the law. As I have traveled the State, people tell me they believe partisan politics do not belong in our Courts. I look forward to bringing new blood to the Supreme Court and focusing my energy on the important work Wisconsin residents elect Supreme Court justices to do."
