The winner of the Wisconsin Supreme Court election is JoAnne Kloppenburg, Assistant District Attorney, who won by 204 votes  against David Prosser, incumbent State Supreme Court Justice. This was reported by US news sites, April 6, 2011.

America is watching closely the results because of the political implications that it denotes. If Prosser, Governor Walker’s man won, then it may imply that the union group has no support from majority of Wisconsin’s electorate. JoAnne Kloppenburg’s win has made a clear statement across America that union groups can be powerful and could cost votes of candidates.

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker has signed a bill for implementation which reduced the right of collective bargaining by unions and this is, in most probability, the reason for the Kloppenburg winning the election, when previously it was seen as a Prosser win.

A recount is in order though as the lead is so small. Recounting officially begins and errors may have been committed because of the speed of the first election results. Nothing is still certain until official results of the election recount of Kloppenburg and Prosser votes are in. The rest of the country is watching closely.
