Following is the statement of Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Mike Tate on the news that Sen. John Lehman has picked up another 55 votes in the official county canvass.

"Given that Sen. John Lehman has picked up more votes during the county canvass  increasing his lead by 55 more to 834 votes over Sen. Van Wanggaard  we believe that Wanggaard should call off the recount process and move on as soon as possible for the residents of Racine's 21st Senate district. An increase in votes for Sen. Lehman makes it clear he has rightfully won and should begin representing those who elected him without further futile delays."
