10:13pm: Thread trois.
10:10pm: A few more votes from Madison have trickled in, bringing KloJo back into the lead. However, the swing is still only 2.84%, less than what we need.
10:01pm: At the halfway mark now, and Prosser is now underperforming by about 3.5%. That number needs to clear 5% for KloJo to win. The Milwaukee burbs, however, are still the laggards here, at 23% reporting. However, the number of votes in Waukesha seems a little out of wack, as taking them at face value suggest that turnout is 8 times higher today than in the primary.
9:56pm: With 65% reporting for Milwaukee County Exec, Chris Abele is leading 61-39. I think we can chalk this one up for Team Blue.
9:48pm: With 42% reporting now, Prosser’s assembled a 52-48 lead, or 19,000 votes. “Outstate” – if there is one – is reporting and not being the friendliest to KloJo. Potential areas of improvement include the college towns in La Crosse/Eau Claire/Stevens Point and Madison. Despite their repugnant redness, the Milwaukee burbs are swinging 8.36% towards KloJo – more than what’s needed.
9:39pm: Back to Chicago for a second, a few incumbents lost tonight: Bernie Stone and John Rice for sure, and possibly Fredrenna Lyle in the 6th. The Republicans might be going 0-for-50, with both would be GOPers losing, by 260 votes in the 41st and by 31 votes in the 45th. [And Sharon Denise Dixon in the 24th. No love for Rhymefest though, who loses to incumbent Wilie Cochran.]
9:29pm: Things continue to move slightly in KloJo’s favor, with Prosser doing 3.2% worse than before. Hopefully, the trend continues. Prosser is underperforming in all areas except Dane County – which is explained by the fact that Madison has yet to report.
9:22pm: Prosser’s doing 2.4% worse than in the primary. However, the MKE suburbs’s are only 8%…which leaves plenty of room for him to pad his lead, sadly.
9:17pm: Chris Abele continues to crush for MKE County Exec, now 61-39 with 28% in.
It’s a progressive party.
