Reports: Uncovered computer error could net Prosser thousands of votes 

Potentially major news in the Wisconsin Supreme Court race, from National Review:

After Tuesday night’s Wisconsin Supreme Court election, a computer error in heavily Republican Waukesha County failed to send election results for the entire City of Brookfield to the Associated Press. The error, revealed today, would give incumbent Supreme Court Justice David Prosser a net 7,381 votes against his challenger, attorney Joanne Kloppenburg. On Wednesday, Kloppenburg declared victory after the AP reported she finished the election with a 204-vote lead, out of nearly 1.5 million votes cast.

Wisconsin's news radio 620 WTMJ tells a similar story, and says, "Waukesha County Clerk Kathy Nickolaus will hold a press conference at 5:30 this evening, perhaps pertaining to those reports."
