Recount PossibleAs the state watched Dane County battle Waukesha and Washington counties (reporting suspiciously late as their turn-out was not heavy) after 11:00 P.M., Fond du Lac County was reporting 0 of 77 wards in, due to unpredicted massive turn-out that had election officials scrabbling to make new ballots.
Fond du Lac County
Fondy at approximately 11:20, and home of recall target Sen. Randy Hopper, supplied what proved to be, some three hours later, [too-close-to-call-now] margin in the race.
Kloppenburg captured 39 percent of the vote, outperforming Tom Barrett who last November won 34 percent of the vote.
Kloppenburg's losing margin in heavy-GOP Fondy is some 6,000 votes v. Barrett's 11,000.
