Leibham won’t seek recount

There will be no recount in the Republican primary for the 6th District Congressional primary.

State Sen. Joe Leibham, R-Sheboygan, announced Friday he will not seek a recount in the race, which he lost by 219 votes in the official tally to State Sen. Glenn Grothman, R-Campbellsport.

That margin, out of more than 60,000 votes cast in the four-man race, was close enough that Leibham could have sought a recount at no cost to himself, but he declined to do so.

Leibham won his seat in the state Senate in 2002 over incumbent Democrat Jim Baumgart in a close race that saw Baumgart seek an unsuccessful recount.

Grothman will now take on Democrat Mark Harris, the county executive of Winnebago County, in the Nov. 4 election for the seat now held by Rep. Tom Petri, R-Fond du Lac.

Leibham gave up his state Senate seat to make the run for the Republican Congressional nomination.
