Wis. court challenger will seek statewide recount

JoAnne Kloppenburg speaks during a news conference at the Warner Park Community Recreation Center in Madison, Wis., Wednesday, April 20, 2011. Kloppenburg announced her decision to request a statewide recount in April's State Supreme Court election. Incumbent David Prosser currently holds about a 7,300-vote lead. That's close enough that Kloppenburg can ask for a free recount at the expense of municipalities and counties. Prosser has said a recount would be frivolous.

Scott Walker's polarizing union rights law.
