Kleefisch says prepare for recount

MADISON, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Wisconsin Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch is telling supporters of Gov. Scott Walker to prepare for a recount.

The race between Walker and Democrat Tony Evers was too close to call early Wednesday morning. Kleefisch told supporters just before 1 a.m. that "the fight is not over." She says, "We must ensure every valid vote in the state of Wisconsin is counted and we must be gracious no matter the outcome."

Kleefisch says to prepare for a "long, drawn-out recount."

If the difference between Walker and Evers is within 1 percentage point, a recount can be requested.
