Democrat King concedes defeat in state Senate race to Republican Gudex

OSHKOSH, WI (WTAQ) - Republicans will have a firm three-vote majority in the Wisconsin Senate, after Democratic incumbent Jessica King of Oshkosh conceded her close election Tuesday.

King lost by 0.7 percent to Fond du Lac Republican Rick Gudex – but she wanted to see the official canvasses from last Tuesday’s voting before deciding whether to seek a recount.

Gudex said he increased his lead by 9 votes after the canvasses in Fond du Lac and Winnebago counties, with Dodge County’s canvass coming up Wednesday.

Republicans held the seat for 35 years before King defeated Randy Hopper in a recall election last year.

The GOP currently has a 17-15 edge, but the party is unopposed in an upcoming special election for the seat vacated by Pewaukee Republican Rich Zipperer.
