Final result still unclear in recount of 17th Senate District race

MONROE, WI (WTAQ) - The final result is still not known in a state Senate primary, after Green County canvassers certified a recount Wednesday with 110 ballots missing.

Democrat Pat Bomhack asked for the recount, after the Election Night tally from August 12th showed him losing to Ernie Wittwer by just 7 votes out of 7,700 cast.

Bomhack gained 28 votes in Monroe, where the ballots were lost. However, we still don't know who won the primary, because recounts have not been completed yet in the Juneau and Richland county parts of the 17th Senate District.

Wittwer, a former DOT budget director, says he'll talk to a lawyer before deciding whether to challenge Green County's final canvass.

It's not known why Monroe had ballots missing. City Clerk Carol Stamm told the county canvassing board that a poll worker might have mixed used and unused ballots before throwing the unused ones away.

She also said it's possible that somebody took the ballots right after the polls closed. Police are investigating to see if a crime took place.

The final winner of the Democratic primary will face Republican Howard Marklein in November for the Senate seat to be given up by moderate Republican Dale Schultz.
