Recount inevitable BUT Unofficial tally and now Rep. Mason announces: Kloppenburg wins by 233. Results Mapped.

Much of Wisconsin has been on the edge of its seat waiting and watching and refreshing the screen at MJS or AP hoping to see Joanne Kloppenburg win.

Based on tweets, a precinct in Milwaukee and the Lake Mills numbers are what we have been waiting for.

And at 12:49PM, a tweet:

“Cory Mason, state assemblyman on FB: Jefferson County in, Kloppenburg wins by 233! #wiunion#wivote #WEareWINNING “- from 2NewEarthRising New Earth Rising  and @PhilipStl:

I am pleased. But I’m not dancing, only because –

1) I’m terribly fatigued and

2) We know there is going to be a recount.

3) I wanted Joanne Kloppenburg to not just win, but *soundly* win.

BUT I know full well that what’s been pulled off by Joanne Kloppenburg and the people of Wisconsin is stunning.

Joanne was not supposed to make it this far.

I hope Joanne Kloppenburg and ther campaign team are feeling some pride in the midst of all of the other emotions they must be experiencing today.

By the way, I don’t blame either candidate for calling an inevitable recount. You’d have to be insane not to demand a recount when your opponent wins by around 0.01 percent of the total vote.

Here is a link to the laws and procedures governing recounts (I will be writing a summary in a bit): Election Recount Procedures from G.A.B.

And below is a map from the It’s Academic blog.

You know I want that whole state to be cobalt blue.
