While the race to elect a state Supreme Court judge was too close to call, and is headed for a recount, in La Crosse County there was no doubt who won.
Lisa Neubauer received 13,848 votes to Brian Hagedorn’s 8,885 in the county.
Overall, the difference in the race is under 1 percent, with Hagedorn out front. Anything under that percentage point allows the trailing candidate to request a recount.
