Wis. Supreme Court recount begins

The statewide Supreme Court recount is under way.

County clerks were scheduled to begin the process at 9 a.m. Wednesday morning. The state Government Accountability Board planned to post results as they gathered them on the board's website.

The board wants the recount done by May 9, but may seek an extension if the process bogs down.

Challenger JoAnne Kloppenburg asked for the recount last week after final county totals showed incumbent Justice David Prosser with a 7,316-vote lead.

The recount marks the third statewide recount in Wisconsin history.
