UPDATE: Neylon's Narrow Victory in Assembly Race to Stand

UPDATED: Monday, March 4, 2013 --- 1:05 p.m.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A recount will not be requested in the state Assembly Republican primary race narrowly won by Pewaukee window cleaning business owner Adam Neylon last month.

Neylon finished with 29 votes more than his closest challenger, Village of Pewaukee Police Chief Ed Baumann in the Feb. 19 election. Monday is the deadline for Baumann to request a recount. Baumann says he won't seek one because he doesn't believe the results will change.

That means Neylon will represent the 98th Assembly District barring an unforeseen write-in campaign. No Democrat ran for the seat.

Neylon's name will be the only one on the April 2 ballot.

Final results of the primary were to be certified on Tuesday by the Government Accountability Board.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The winner of a five-way Republican primary for a state Assembly seat near Milwaukee faces no Democratic opposition and will take the seat barring an unlikely write-in campaign.

The Republicans face each other in Tuesday's primary.

They are running to replace Paul Farrow who won a special election in December to fill a vacant Senate seat.

Candidates in the primary are Village of Pewaukee Police Chief Ed Baumann, construction project manager Todd Greenwald, Marquette University graduate student Matt Morzy, window cleaning business owner Adam Neylon and Jeanne Tarantino, the former chief of staff to Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch.

The 98th Assembly District includes the city and Village of Pewaukee, Sussex and the northern portion of Waukesha
