Evers Upsets Walker in Race for Governor


State Superintendent Tony Evers defeated Governor Scott Walker in Wisconsin's gubernatorial race. A tight race all night - Evers pulled ahead in the early Wednesday morning hours, pushed by the late addition of Milwaukee County votes. 

Evers came away with a two-percent victory. Only 620 votes separated the candidates before the late surge put Evers up by more than 30,000 points. 

Governor Walker's campaign claimed they would push for a "long, drawn-out" recount, but with him falling by over one-percent, it's currently unclear what will happen in the coming days, as recount rules in Wisconsin require the losing candidate to be within one-percent of the winning candidate's total votes. 

Walker has yet to concede defeat to Evers.
