Walker Concedes Race for Governor to Evers

Scott Walker conceded the race for Wisconsin
governor to now governor-elect Tony Evers on Wednesday afternoon. 

In a statement – Walker thanked Evers for his gracious
comments and offered full support of his staff and cabinet as they begin the
transition process. Walker’s campaign reports
that they were awaiting additional information on the nearly 47,000 additional
ballots announced late by the city of Milwaukee
– as a result of ballots that had been damaged and had to be recreated. 

Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch’s remarks about a possible recount were
made based on information showing the governor with a slight lead over Evers at
the time. The final influx of votes didn’t come in until after she was heading
to take the stage. 

After inquiring about the additional ballots, Walker’s campaign determined that any change in the result
would not be significant enough to determine the outcome of the election, despite
the close margin and other questions of how the city of Milwaukee executed its election night
