— The second place finisher in the Republican primary for the 45th Assembly District is seeking a recount.

Jeff Klett says his backers want him to request the recount in the race that led to a 19 vote margin victory to Amy Loudenbeck.


Klett says Tuesday evening was a "real roller-coaster ride." He first thought he lost but was then told he won by ten votes. Then after the votes in Walworth County were counted, he lost by 19.


The winner will face Democrat Roger Anclam in the November general election. Incumbent Representative Chuck Benedict did not seek reelection.
