Dem Robyn Vining is declaring victory in her race against GOP state Treasurer Matt Adamczyk for the open 14th AD after she trailed in the initial count by 21 votes.
The declaration comes after returns were updated in Waukesha and Milwaukee counties, the two that make up the district. The results put Vining 132 votes ahead of Adamczyk, per a WisPolitics.com check of the two counties’ sites.
Vining in a statement late Wednesday night thanked her family, friends and campaign volunteers for the win.
“Yesterday, I promised that I would not stop until every vote was counted. Today, we see the results,” she said.
Adamczyk in a statement Thursday morning noted the new discovery “is the reason we have a canvass.”
“I will wait until after the official canvass results to announce my decision whether or not I pursue a recount,” he said.
The results would give Republicans a 63-36 majority in the Assembly.
