Republican’s apparent victory in Wauwatosa Assembly race at risk after new vote tally

MILWAUKEE (AP) — A suburban Assembly seat appears to have swung to the Democrat candidate running for it after the city of Wauwatosa discovered that not all its election results had been reported.

The Democrat Robyn Vining declared victory on Thursday after revised totals showed her with a 132-vote margin over the Republican Matt Adamczyk. There were roughly 33,000 ballots cast in their contest.

Wauwatosa said Milwaukee County reported it hadn’t received votes from two wards. The revised and verified totals gave Vining a net gain of 153 votes, enough to push her into the lead in the tight race.

Adamczyk said he would wait until an official canvass is completed to decide whether to pursue a recount.

If the result were confirmed for Vining, it would leave Republicans with a 63-36 edge in the Assembly.
