WAUKESHA, WI (WTAQ) - The owner of a Waukesha County window cleaning business is the official winner of a state Assembly primary, by just 29 votes.
An official canvass of the 5,200 ballots was completed Wednesday – and Adam Neylon was declared the winner. He gained 3 votes from the Election Night total – and it gave him 2,006 votes to 1,977 for Pewaukee Police Chief Ed Baumann.
Baumann gained 4 votes as a result of the canvass. He has until 5 p.m. Monday to ask for a recount – but he would have to pay for it himself, since the margin is more than one-half-of-one-percent.
The eventual primary is expected to win the Assembly seat in April, since no Democrats are on the ballot.
Neylon is in line to replace Paul Farrow, who was elected to the Senate in a special balloting last December.
